When it comes to Brazil, there’s so much more than the bikini or the colourful carnival. Welcome, then, to Sao Paulo and its 42nd fashion week, where designers fully embraced the see-now-buy-now concept. To celebrate, we’ve selected our favourite looks from the catwalk for an editorial dedicated to the 24-hour city: urban and full of texture. From the architecture of its building to the architecture of its wardrobes, minimal lines combine with volumes and a genderless dynamic to showcase our highlights of the season.
