INSTA LIFESTYLE, THE FRENCH WAY We arrived in Paris with the Fashion Week. Stylists, models and several high profile people spread among the many events that took place almost simultaneously at several different places. We went from place to place to find out what seemed obvious from the start: no matter what (or who) happens, Paris always has the lead role. However, for one night only, the City of Lights lent us its sparkle so we could launch Lifestyle Magazine’s 14th edition in style, as it should be. Lauren Santo Domingo, our cover girl, paraded her usual kindness through the lobby of the Le Bistrol Hotel, under the watchful eyes of American writer Derek Blasberg. Back to her lead role, Paris got the spotlight on the following pages, with sections that dare to unravel some of its secrets and others that reinforce its traditions. Coincidentally, the special dedicated to the French capital was also the spot for the debut runway show of our new columnists, Claudia Torres Rondón and Pat Brandão – our new fashion and personalities experts, respectively. Adding to our score, we called football star Alexandre Pato to be the starting player in our cover. Dodging formalities, we became friends and supporters of each other’s storis and carriers. From my VIP seat on Terraço Itália, where the photo shoot took place, I could listen to play-by-play account of a thrilling life, marked by battles in and out of the pitch. Luckily, we could count on the star’s infallible aim to kickoff this new graphic project for Lifestyle Magazine, thought out to be more modern, dynamic and inviting. While some still believe that you “shouldn’t change a winning team”, we defend that the only team that never loses is the one that never stops changing.
On Instagram, our features director reveals some of what goes on behind the scenes of Lifestyle Magazine – which, many times, crosses Brazil’s borders.

I JUST WANNA RIDE For some, it is a means of transportations, for others, a hobby, and there are still those who see it as a way to get in shape – and they are all right: bikes play many roles and they have never been more in vogue but cycling requires some special care.
DYNAMIC DUO Not many areas are as competitive as fashion, where every move requires a broad view of the business. In order to help big and small labels to establish their framework, partners Luiza Mattos and Babi Romboli funded BRLM – Planejamento Estratégico de Marca (BRLM - Label Strategic Planning), a company that operates in different areas, from CRM to internal marketing, going through media and cobranding. BRLM’s differential is the partners’ résumés. Babi holds a degree from the School of Fashion and one from Saint Martin, in London. She has worked for Daslu, Carlos Miele and Burberry and, for the past three years, she has been working as a consultant for several other labels and clients. On the other hand, publicist Luiza was responsible for the marketing of Bobo, Noir Le Lis Blanc, John John and Arezzo.
Bike paths investments and user awareness policies have increased the number of cyclists, who, before riding around, now know to take some precautions. The first of them is finding out the appropriate frame size for your height as well as the model that best suits your needs. If you’re looking for a city bike, for instance, you should prioritize urban models, since their geometry helps keeping cyclists in a more vertical position, offering them comfort and stability. In this segment, one of the most famous, Danish Velobris, has elegantly designed bicycles. Foldable models, as the name suggests, are small and easy to store. They are recommended for short distances, due to rim size. Even though they are usually considered for sports, mountain bikes are very practical. Since they are great for irregular terrains, they also adapt to most cities’ poor handled concrete. Speed or road bikes are specific for concrete and sports. Once you choose a model, it is time to invest in safety: helmet, protective gloves and hydration backpack are highly desirable items – if not mandatory. And, in order for you not to set your style aside, our tip is the inflatable helmet, that works almost like an airbag. Developed in Sweden, this product resembles a head scarf as it’s worn around the neck.

At 28, the carioca has “only” had time to discover himself as a screenwriter, a columnist, a poet and an actor – maybe when he gets older he will reveal other talents still. His artistic career began in the theater in 2004, followed by his debut on cable TV, such as HBO’s “Mandrake” and Multishow’s “Cilada”. Without letting the stage go, Gregório featured on more than 15 movies and dozens of TV shows – including as screenwriter. He also published the book “From tomorrow on I swear life will

His most recent professional challenge came in 2013 when he was invited to write weekly column for Folha de São Paulo Newspaper, which appears every Monday at the Illustrated Section. That was also the year when he awarded for his monologue “Uma noite na lua” by the Theater Producers Association of Rio de Janeiro.

With his Aquazzura, Edgardo Osorio is up to par with some of world’s most powerful women, including trendsetter Olivia Palermo Born in Cartagena, Colombia, Edgardo Osorio realized in his youth his aptitude for the arts, especially those within the universe of design and fashion. He knew from a young age that he would one day he change sides and it would be his pictures featuring on those pages. He followed that path at 15, while still living in Colombia, but soon felt the need to go abroad to refine his talent. In London, he attended Central Saint Martins and the London College of Fashion. By the time he was 18, he was offered a job in Florence, for Salvatore Ferragamo’s label – and it was then that his career took off. Still in Italy, Edgardo collaborated with labels like Rene Caovilla, Sigerson Morrison and, before going solo with Aquazzura, worked as head designer for Roberto Cavalli.

When I decided to launch my own label, I realized the market was in need of shoes that could be sexy and comfortable, at the same time. We make what we can call the market’s most comfortable high heel shoes – and this is one of our label’s pillars. We have on our team technicians who have been working with and studying the human feet for 40 years. Together we developed shoe structures that better distribute body weight through the different areas of the feet. Your label’s main stars are high heel shoes. How do you feel about flats’ popularization? When meeting me, some women wearing low heels or flats apologize to me, as if they should be wearing high heels.

When I chose to start my own business, I knew the products would have to be manufactured in Italy, where you can find artisans of unparalleled experience, so Florence was a great choice. Also, I’ve always wanted my label to reflect the beauty and sophistication of the Italian style, which is never too much or too little. As everything in life, the secret of success is in details. How did the partnership with Olivia Pallermo come to be? How have your clients received the new collection?

Uh la la! idea. We talked about shoes and how we always end up going back to certain styles – and that was the starting point for this collection, being a kind of “survival kit” for the modern woman; pieces that everyone should have. The success of the collection reflects how well received this line was. But who is this woman that wears Aquazzura? There isn’t a specific profile for women that appreciate the label. I believe the label is for modern consumers, with an interesting and active lifestyle. I think my clients love travelling, they appreciate beauty and good things in life – and that’s where comfort comes in. I want my client to be able to wear my shoes all day long, without getting tired; I want her to fell beautiful and powerful. When I create a new model, my goal is making women even more feminine: nothing short of what they deserve.

FASHION Gender equality was the order of the day behind Miuccia Prada’s creative process, which resulted in the maison’s new menswear collection, exhibited in Milan. She states it was almost instinctive translating the same concepts in the development of pieces that may dress either men or women. Unlike the androgynous looks that spring to mind with such a definition, the stylist displayed, in fact, conservative attires. Serious looking boys and girls took to the runway in matching ensembles. Some pieces like the perfectly cut jackets and the vintage looking suits and skirts were backstitched in order to emphasize classic shapes. Crystal brocade evening gowns caught the public’s eye. Printed t-shirts and V-neck sweaters brought as much of a 1970’s feeling to the collection as the runway background: an indigo blue swimming pool framed by a maroon carpeted catwalk. The combination of jeans and leather was probably one of the most conventional bets to step foot in a Prada runway show in decades. A former member of the Communist Party turned fashion icon, Miuccia Prada now raises the flag of a conservative spring fashion. It is not the time to go crazy, says Miuccia, who holds control of the label since 1978 and who is one of The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women, according to Forbes Magazine.

The Peninsula group has opened its tenth hotel, the first in Europe. The fusion between the Asian network expertise and the French savoir-faire has created a hotel of majestic standards. Amongst rumors, promises and a lot of expectation, The Peninsula Paris has finally received its first guests at the beginning of August. After a four-year restoration process, the hotel has opened its doors and became the first of same name network in Europe. In order to celebrate its arrival in the Old World, the Asian Group The Peninsula didn’t spare any effort or expenses. This 19th century building in the heart of Paris, just a few steps away from Champs-Élysées was originally converted into the Hotel Majestic in 1908. Throughout the 1920’s it received distinguished guests such as Picasso, Marcel Proust and Stravinsky and hosted some of the biggest haute societé’s events. It is said that it was during one of his stays at the Hotel Majestic that Georges Gershwin composed “An American in Paris”, in 1928. Later, the place became a foreign relations center and it was here that the famous Paris Peace Accords were signed in 1973, ending the Vietnam War. It is a place filled with stories that the group was interested in keeping. Therefore, all of the restoration work was thorough and insured that several parts of the buildings were brought back to
the way they originally looked. The façade is one of its main features and in order to restore its ten thousand square meters of sculpted rocks, the group hired 20 highly specialized artists who spent a long time on it, since even the smallest of the details requires long hours of dedication. The endgame is an opulent and meticulously sculpted façade. The lobby’s majestic ceiling, its fireplaces, mosaics, frameworks and frescos were also restored and their original features were brought back to life. Still, all over the hotel there are touches of modernity that create the perfect balance between the classic and the contemporary. A great example is the modern rock sculpture signed by Xavier Corbero, which coexists in the hotel in perfect harmony with the sumptuous 800-crystalpiece leave emulating chandelier created by the Czech glass designer Lasvit. The hotel’s 200 bedrooms and en-suites are also a combination of traditional and modern, which resulted in elegant rooms, decorated in sober colors, complete with marble bathrooms and several technological elements.

If drastically changing his restaurant’s architecture wasn’t enough – it now has a new look, according to the daily special – Alain Ducasse also transformed the whole menu in his stared restaurant at the Plaza Athénée Hotel, prioritizing a healthier cuisine. The menu, previously made up of mostly meat dishes, now focuses on organic vegetables, agriculturally correct cereals and fish coming from sustainable fishing ports. The radical move is, according to Ducasse, a cohesive answer to the fact that we need to change our feeding habits while keeping them “in sync with nature and the environment”. The turbot cooked with chickpeas and crustaceans is one of the menu’s delight.
THE REBIRTH OF A CLASSIC
A REVAMPED ICON OF HOSPITALITY
Pomp, elegance and charisma where never lacking at Le Bristol, one of the most famous palaces turned hotels in Paris. In order to highlight all of these elements, however, constant updates are necessary – after all, the hotel has been working since 1925. In order to do so, the house was subjected to a long restoration, which ended recently. New life was blown into its gardens, its façade, lobby and several en-suites, all of which received new furniture and décor. The whole process, however, took over six years to be completed and it was carried out while the hotel was still in perfect working conditions – a rare feat. Among the en-suites, one of the most sought after is the Panoramic and its generous spaces – including a closet that is every fashion icon dream – and a majestic view of the City of
Lights. Besides, the en-suite was featured in Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”, lending it some extra charm. When it comes to cuisine, it is second to none. The three starts chef Eric Frenchon is responsible for the hotel’s restaurants, like the 114 Fraubourg, a high-end one Michelin star brasserie that serves mouthwatering dishes, such as the white truffles gnocchi and the lamb with zucchini. It was amidst all of the Le Bristol glamour that the already traditional Livestyle Lovers event, promoted by Lifestyle Magazine, took place. Scheduled during the Parisian Fashion Week, the party was a huge success and counted with illustrious presences like that of Ken Downing, Neiman Marcus’s fashion director and cover girl Lauren Santo Domingo.

A restaurant that looks like a private nightclub and holds the status of local icon. That is Caviar Kaspia, established in 1927, which, on its way to become a Parisian icon, has witnessed infinity of important people on its tables. Located at the Place de Madeleine, this is more than a caviar boutique. It attracts customers due to its intimate environment, its tradition and impeccable menu – in which caviar is, of course, the main star. There are several delicacies available, all of them served in a multitude of ways. Stylist Yves-Saint Laurent was one of the many people that turned the restaurant into their HQ for fancy dinners and nowadays, Beyoncé, Sofia Coppola, Tom Ford and Alexander Wang are among the house’s habitués.
The wait for the Fondation Louis Vuitton is about to end. After six years of construction, the opening of the LVMH Culture Center is scheduled for October 27. Located at the 16th arrondissement in Paris, the Museum will house the maison’s contemporary art collection and temporary exhibits on its 12 galleries and almost twelve thousand square meters. The space will also host concerts and recitals in its auditorium. Even the ultra-modern building looks like a work of art. The American architect Frank Gehry, whose main inspiration was the Grand Palais – that, like the museum, uses glass as one of its main raw materials - signs its project. The result was a bold and elegant construction and one of the LVMH conglomerate largest investments in the art and culture field – around 100 million euros or 305 million Brazilian reais. The building is so important that it will actually be the content for the first exhibit, featuring details about its development and creating. The exhibition will be open until January 5. According to Bernard Arnault, president of the LVMH group, the museum is a token of their appreciation to their loyal clientele and employees.

Battles and conquests seem to be the burden of those that carry the name “Great”. Albeit in a very different field, though not the less noble or competitive, Alexandre Rodrigues da Silva – Pato – does not deviate from the norm neither does he shy from a fight and, in doing so, makes History repeat itself, as it should have been: the first, as a tragedy; the second, a triumph. Never exaggerating or excluding, the Pato Branco, Paraná born kid still dedicates himself completely to every little thing he does and, in each game, Alexandre shines and grows, taking on proportions that honor his birth name. Despite the Goliath effect being a little obvious when looking down from the stands, the boy that runs after the ball on the pitch still sees the world through modesty lens. “I consider myself mighty lucky for being able to do what I love doing and being recognized by it. I try to give back all the love and all the trust put in me by caring out a positive message to sports fans”, he says a little before dodging questions of a more personal nature: “I don’t like gossiping and exposing my private life. I’m really reserved when it comes to that, I try preserving myself and the people that are with me”. With the whistle blown due to a foul, we’ve managed to gain some ground with Pato lowering his guard and telling us a little about his trajectory: “I was born and raised in Pato Branco, Paraná, with my parents and my siblings in a very normal daily routine. I went to school and played with my friends – my favorite game was football already. Life was simple but what we lacked in resources we had abundantly in love and support. I was 11 years old when Inter made me a good offer. I still remember the day my parents took me to the bus terminal and put me on a bus that would take me from Pato Branco to Rio Grande do Sul, the first of so many changes yet to come”, he says. “I had to learn to live on my own from a very early age and how to deal with the emotional roller coaster. My mother cried when we talked on the phone and I could feel my heart tight-
ening but then my dad would pick up the phone and tell me to be strong and that helped me with missing them and with the control of my anxiety and my fears. Even from far away, I could always rely on them. I think that was a very important time for me”. Besides this moral fiber, all the experiences he collected over the past twenty-five years also contributed to shaping his preferences. Alexandre Pato adores fashion and he is pretty careful with the way he looks: in his closet you will find several pieces designed by great stylists and he tends to go for the best cut suits, although he indulges in the comfort of jeans and a t-shirt when he’s out with friends or travelling – something else he loves. Regardless of his destination, the number 11 on the squad of São Paulo Futebol Clube insists on tasting some of the local culinary and he has openly talked about being a fan of good cuisine. On his free time, besides the tradition hunt for new and exciting flavors, Pato also watches Game of Thrones. His favorite character is the Khaleesi, played by actress Emilia Clarke – so much so that the TV queen now has a post on the football’s star’s Instagram account (@alexandrepato) with over a million followers. This is the social media that Pato chose to get closer to his fans, sharing a little bit about his everyday life and revealing a side of Alexandre that few people know: a laid back guy who loves dogs and engages in social causes – things that drive him into repelling violent behavior in and out of pitch. “I have a good relationship with my fans and supporters and I can tell you I know lot more people that mean well than those that don’t. People that want to prestige their favorite squad, support the players and have football playing a good part of their lives. Unfortunately, there are always those who don’t behave like that and choose a more violent, offensive path. It seems that those people are there only to express their hatred. I feel bad when I witness racist acts. This goes completely against the spirit of sport – aggregating and

“Today I am playing for São Paulo Futebol Clube and I feel very good about it. My contract goes to the end of 2015. I don´t know what will happen after that.

Mine is always a message of peace but respect is something that each and every person should have in their conscience”, he ponders, scoring yet another goal outside the pitch. Now, when the subject is Bom Senso Futebol Clube – the movement created by players who worried about the current state of affairs in Brazilian football – the forward prefers to play safe: “I admire the idea and the people that took part in it. I think it is important to talk about how to improve the conditions around the sport that is a national passion. Yes, I would like to contribute, but I don’t know if now the time is right”. Pato goes back to his forward position when the ball falls on the terrains of frustrations, since his career has not been without its difficulties. “Setbacks are a part of any career and any game, not only football. I have always been grounded, probably because I started playing when I was really young. Next year will be my tenth as a professional football player. I have lived through a lot of things, a lot of them were incredible but some, not so much. But I can tell you that by far my biggest frustrations were the injuries I have suffered and the games I have had to miss due to that. The worst thing for a player is to be left out of the pitch. It is agonizing”, he confesses, amidst rumors of yet another injury: on October 15, Pato left the game São Paulo x Huachipato at 33 minutes of the second half, feeling his right thigh. Despite his coach’s worrying, the player states that he is “completely healed from every injury” and commands Brazilian medical teams for their great job. Still, he says, “every time one of my injuries was diagnosed I suffered a lot, as they interrupted
the sequence of games I could play. Today, however, I have overcome all of them”. Connecting the dots, it’s impossible not to ask whether the forward player will return to Europe, once his return to the country was brought about due to his need to physically recover as well to recover his playing sequence – two ambitions the star has confessedly achieved. Here, in a very straightforward answer, Pato kicks the ball to a corner: “Today I am playing for São Paulo Futebol Clube and I feel very good about it. My contract goes to the end of 2015. I don´t know what will happen after that. I have had a very good run in Europe, I miss the country and the friends I’ve made. I am extremely honored by the recent interest some of the Old World’s team have shown, but as far as the professional side of things go, it is a very different matter. It all depends on negotiations, working conditions and contracts. And my manager is the one that handles those things”. In a quick sequence of passings, Alexandre shows his control of the ball, based upon his life experiences. He says that, as a rule, European football “highlights passing, especially those exchanged by players at a short distance and, in Brazil, individual plays are more important”. Striking against this tendency, the giant that takes to the pitch likes to think about the group, while outside the four lines he needs no effort to think not as “I” but “we”. Unlike the historical character after whom he is named, (our) Alexandre needs no weapons to conquer new territories – all he has to do is either to smile or to open his arms and his heart and several will willingly surrender to this always well groomed player’s charisma.

After gaining a legion of fans with the SLR McLaren and the SLS AMG, Mercedes once again takes the world by surprise with a special model, unveiled at this year’s Paris Motor Show. As the first sports car, completely developed by AMG, the newcomer AMG GT Mercedes weights 145 kilos less than its predecessor SLS, thanks to the aluminum used in most of its structure. It can also be found throughout the body of sinuous lines, clearly inspired by the 1950’ and 1960’s sports classics, especially the 300 SL. Unlike the SLS, whose doors opened upwards, the AMG GT is more conventional. In fact, a clean design is this car’s most striking feature. A closer look will unveil stylistic elements present in other Mercedes-Benz models, like the LED lights with horizontal lines and the three-pointed star in the middle. The airfoil, built-in to the trunk, opens automatically when the car crosses the 120 km/h line, “sticking” it to the ground more effectively and providing the driver with more control and safety. Hidden under the hood, the 4.0 V8 Bi Turbo engine delivers 456 horsepower and 61,11 kgfm of torque. The GT S version, top of the line, delivers 503 hp and 66,28 kgfm – which means it goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, reaching its full speed at 310 km/h. Its interior is also quite desirable: if you are sitting at the front seat, you get a fully electronic panel at your disposal with plenty of options. Besides entertainment, its technology also offers safety with features like rear differential control, which provides equal torque distribution and offers ideal

Another extremely useful resource for aspiring pilots is the one that enables you to choose different driving modes, allowing the driver to select from four different sets that turn the car from a comfortable sedan to a racing car. All of it with the touch of a button. The AMG GT has just been unveiled. However, we foresee trouble for other big brands. So far, the only sure thing is that the new Bi Motor starts selling in Europe sometime in the beginning of 2015, at a price of around 125 thousand Euros. By mid-2015, Brazilian drivers will be able to get to know the new sports model created to challenge the market. We can hardly wait.

Fashion, music, dancing and acting: it all goes well with Ansel Elgort’s talent and versatility I’m sorry to say, but the fault is not in our stars: they simply can’t help but falling in love with Ansel Elgort – and they each have a reason for that. Stylist Valentino, for instance, was blown away by the young actor’s charisma and youthful style, son to fashion consultant Arthur Elgor, former member of the Vogue staff, and opera director Grethe Barrett Holby. While his siblings prefer to be behind the cameras – his brother is a filmmaker and his sister, a photographer -, stage lights seduced Ansel at an early age, when he took ballet classes with Olga Kostritzky, who trained Natalie Portman in Black Swan. At age 9, he tried out for the
renowned School of American Ballet but gave up after realizing that wasn’t where his heart was at. In an interview for the NY Daily News, Ansel confessed that he “hated ballet, but I loved performing”. His dancing background came in handy, however, when he transitioned to musical theater with confidence and flippancy. The right posture, the talent and the looks – of course! – caught Hollywood’s best scouts eyes and before he turned 20, Ansel had already been cast in three big productions: “Carrie”, “Divergent” and “The fault in our stars”.

With a contract signed for other movies – including those in the “Divergent” franchise -, Ansel makes sure to leave gaps in his schedule in which he can feed his passion for music. Under the nickname Ansolo, the actor takes over pick-up trucks in order to remix tracks like “Born to Die” by Lana Del Rey.

LIFEST YLE BUSINESS “Passengers don’t think about how things will affect their trip, whether pilots will go on strike or flights will be cancelled”
Years ago, a passenger needed to get to Saint Petersburg, Russia. And he was in a hurry. Why? He had to propose to his girlfriend. It was high season and flights were overbooked. Thanks to Arturto Kelmer, marketing manager for SWISS, the story had a happy ending. PHOTO MARCELO DONATELLI. BY ROBERTO LARROUDE.
He didn’t have to, but yet he called on the company’s headquarters asking about no shows: finding an airplane ticket that would allow this man to fly to Russia to propose to his beloved became a personal crusade for Arturo Kelmer, marketing manager for SWISS International Air Lines in Brazil. Tickets in hand, Arturo asked the staff for special support for the passenger, who soon became known as the “Brazilian in love”. When “Don Juan” arrived at his destiny, the staff of Switzerland’s largest airline gathered to witness the proposal and the payoff to all of Arturo’s hard work: “She said yes!”. Arturo also didn’t have to change seats with me on the flight from Sao Paulo to Zurich, since every seat on it is incredibly comfortable, but he did so nonetheless so I could get a more privileged view from the window seat. None of these attitudes were neither market driven, nor were they previously elaborated. They were instinctive: they are a part of Arturo Kelmer’s selfless and caring personality. Kelmer has been the national leader of the Swiss company since it landed in the country, in 2002. His aeronautics experience began at the extinct Varig airline, where he learned to appreciate the financial fastness of other companies in the business. “Passengers don’t think about how things will affect their trip, whether pilots will go on strike or flights will be cancelled”, he says. After years of
profits, Swiss Airlines still operates as a small or mediumsized enterprise, which, according to Kelmer, expedites decisions and helps with facing the market’s oscillations as well as adverse situations, such as the fuel prices crisis caused by the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. SWISS Airlines is the only airline that, to this day, offers first class services in all of its intercontinental flights and they take advantage of that, for instance by having seats inspired by the 1950’s Eames Lounge Chair, which changes into a 2 meters long bed. Also, meals are served based on a à la carte menu, on ASA porcelain and Riedel crystal glasses, which improves the “Swis Taste of Switzerland” dining experience, a service based on the work of renowned Swiss chefs. If you’re travelling business (voted four years in a row the best among European airlines by the World Travel Award), you will be spoiled. SWISS Business seats feature Air Comfort System, which controls how soft the seat is. They also recline fully. Regardless if you’re flying first, business or economy class, providing you with a comfortable and smooth flight is the main goal of every airline, even if it means offering passengers a simple chocolate after meals. And only SWISS Airlines can offer you the real Swiss chocolate. Moreover, only SWISS Airlines has at its top level someone as concerned with passengers’ experiences as Arturo.

Galleries Lafayette A STRIKING HISTORY
In the fashion world, when a flight does not take off from Paris, there must be, at least, a stopover at the city. Home to great designers and stylists, the French capital hosts the world’s most important Fashion Week. Therefore, it is natural that this is also the birthplace to Europe’s first department store, the Galeries Lafayette. Located at Boulevard Haussmann, at the heart of the tourist area, right behind the Opera Garnier and right beside Saint-Lazare station, this shopping temple was established in 1893, when cousins Théophile Bader and Alphonse Kahn opened up a small novelty shop at Lafayette street. This originally simple enterprise grew up so much that today it takes over 70 thousand square meters and spreads through three different buildings (15 thousand square meters are dedicated exclusively to fashion, with 3,500 labels available on display). It receives hundreds of thousands of visitors every day – it is the second most visited attraction in Paris, with the Louvre Museum being the first. But success comes at a price: for the Galeries Lafayette it means the need of constant innovation. In order to cater to a more demanding public, for instance, the establishment has created La Suite, a 400 square meters studio that resembles a Parisian art gallery.

The president’s peace With a unique comprehension of the market, Roberto Paz is one of the main names behind one of the most important labels in fashion world: Gucci. PHOTO DIVULGAÇÃO. POR PATRÍCIA BRANDÃO.
When Piauí born Roberto Paz left Brazil at the end of the 1970’s to study International Law at the traditional Sorbonne University, in Paris, he could not have imagined that the change in his address was the least of the ones to come. “When I arrived at the French capital, I found out my true love was the fashion luxury market”, says the entrepreneur, who soon gave up on his career in law to dedicate himself to fashion. “I went to University for about an year and half, than I dropped it to go sightseeing and to this day I have not returned from this belle promenade”, adds the man who is, nowadays, considered one of the most prominent Brazilians in world fashion. Throughout his 35 years in fashion, Paz has acquired a vast knowledge and a unique sensibility for the luxury market. His professional experience is internationally acclaimed as he has already held fundamental positions inside several haute couture labels. His first professional challenge was as a salesman for Kenzo, a position which he held for seven years, when he was made retail ambassador for the label. During his time with Kenzo, he overlooked different teams in New York, London and Dusseldorf, Germany. “I am very fond of Kenzo and very thankful to them as well”, he says. In 1986, Paz joined the Valentino team, where he took on the role of management at their store at Avenue Montaigne, one of the most prestigious addresses in the city. Five years later, he got an offer by Hermès to manage the menswear line for the maison, also at the French capital. “Working with Jean Louis Duma was

everyone’s dream. It was an incredibly important moment on my journey and an unprecedented experience which I could never forget”. Roberto joined Gucci in November 1995, thanks to Tom Ford’s efforts. “I would only leave Hermés for Gucci. From the very first moment on, from my very first interview, I identified myself with the label, its culture, the people that worked there, their products, their work, everything”. He gained a lot of experience by working as overall manager first for the French and Belgian stores and later for Gucci stores all over Europe. Since then he has held several different positions inside the company, including that of Chief Market Officer for Latin America and Vice Sales CEO for North America in 2010. His performance was indispensable for the development of the sales department in North America. Roberto Paz, who’s currently living in Sao Paulo, has been Latin America’s Gucci CEO since 2013, a job that allows him to practice all that he has learned throughout the years and labels he has worked for. And it seems like he found the right recipe: this is a wellestablished region which enjoys a long running success, with great future perspectives – which Roberto has thought out carefully. And he did so not due to some sort of blind faith, but partially because he believes in the potential the area has and partially due to his own personal ambition: the same one that has taken him out of Piauí. The same one that took him to the top of one of the world’s greatest fashion labels. Are there any doubts that this will work?

I was invited to take part on Milan Fashion Weel Spring / Summer 2015 and I’ll share here the week’s highlights such as Fendi’s, Prada’s, Roberto Cavalli’s, Pucci’s and Dolce Gabbana’s fashion shows. Karl Lagerfel was the first to take to the runway with muse Cara Delevingne, in a 1960’s inspired show that felt like being in a resort – but it was Karlito, Karl’s skin doll that stole the scene. Prada opened its creation atelier (sort of like a warehouse) to show Miuccia Prada’as voyage through time, the result of her research in 1700’s and 1800’s brocades and jacquards, a cross between a chic thrift shop and high end tailoring. Emilio Pucci’s runaway was scandalous and ended in a standing ovation for the label’s Creative Director, Peter Dundas. On the runway, floral looks and tie-dye maxi dresses such as the one worn by Naomi Campbell immediately turned into must-haves. Italy’s beloved duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, exhibited the result of their trip from Sicily to Seville, in Spain. No matter where the day started, it always ended at the Principe Bar, at the Principe di Savio Hotel, where I stayed. Lucky me: after so many events, it was only a matter of getting into the lift for a well-deserved rest.

Known for loving priceless exhibits, the Petit Palais, in Paris, welcomes an exhibition on Baccarat’s history, running until January of 2015, celebrating the label’s 250th anniversary
“They want me to forget you, Elena”. One of many moving sentences on Petra Costa’s documentary that tells the story of a family tragedy.
Nearly 500 historical pieces that left their mark on an era are on display at the main gallery of the palace in the French capital. Besides the crystals, exclusive documents, photographs and drawings are also part of the exhibit, promoting a true time travel and greater knowledge of the inspirations behind every object. Among the main pieces, one of them causes a true national commotion: Zenith Alvorada’s Chandelier, signed by no others than Fernando and Humberto Campana. Sumptuous and imposing, the chandelier perfectly combines the unique style of the artists and Baccarat’s sophistication. With 24 light spots, the piece mixes crystals and bamboo, lending a Brazilian touch to an exhibition primarily made of typically French items. The piece is part of the Fusion Collection, developed by the brothers in 2013. Alongside this piece, the their collection also has several kinds of pendants and chandeliers, all of them with organic lines and, of course, a lot of crystal. Despite the collection’s success, there’s no denying that Zenith Alvorada’s chandelier stands out in any environment – and it’s not different in the famous Paris museum.
Petra Costa was 7 years old when her sister Elena became depressed, in 1990. Trying to find her own way, Petra retraced her sister’s steps a decade later: she moved to New York and became an actress, against her mother’s pleads. The filmmaker’s trip became one of Brazil’s most impactful documentaries in recent years – and there are those who believe in awards such as The Oscars and Cannes. More than history of a family and the quest for a long lost sister “Elena” deals with one of the darkest diseases of modern times. During the Los Angeles screening, Petra declared that this work is about “the feeling of not fitting in and not knowing how to fit in”. Even though she admits that going back to the past is painful, the actress says it is also necessary. When the documentary was nearly ready, actor Tim Robbins and director Fernando Meirelles got involved as executive producers. “You must have a lot of courage to tell this story the way it’s being told. It’s incredibly raw. It’s like slashing your wrists in front of people”, explained Robbins. With artistic scenes and a melancholic soundtrack, the documentary may seem very personal at first but, in some of the shots, we are all Elenas.

Hats off to him PHOTO DIVULGAÇÃO. BY ALEXANDRE MACHADO.
With hit single “I’m Yours” and other loving ballads, North American Jason Mraz is known worldwide for his positive songs, whether about relationships, a quiet day at the beach or even life itself The simplicity of his lyrics does not end with the melody: Jason Mraz prefers walking bare foot, keeping in touch with the earth and a hat on his head. Pushing away any marketing theory regarding his “relaxed” manner, the singer guarantees he has always led his life this way, light hearted and hopeful. “It’s not just a coincidence that the song talks about how to feel better. When I get up on the wrong side of the bed, I make the day get better. I like to keep my mental health, meditating and repeating mantras to get back to reality”, reveals the two times Grammy winner artist. Following his mens sana way of life, Mraz has habits and hobbies that differ a lot from most Americans his age, since his favorite activities include planting avocadoes, corn, pepper and green leaves on his farm, “where I spend most of my free time, hands dirty and
surrounded by my four cats”. In addition to vegetables, the singer also planted the seeds to his new album there, “Yes”, released in July and an instant success: in just a few weeks it had its first hit, “Love Someone”, on the top of the iTunes chart. The same love and positivity Mraz brings to his music and life, he also puts into projects and social causes he supports. In 2011, for example, the singer founded the Jason Mraz Foundation, working in areas he takes very seriously, like environmental preservation, education and gender equality, especially sensitive themes regarding LBGT rights, a cause he’s been involved in since high school, when he witnessed all the hardships a friend went through when coming out. One of Mraz’s preoccupations is actually having time to enjoy (a lot) his life. Still at the peak of his career, at 37, he plans an early albeit

well justified retirement: alongside a businessman, he launched the campaign #RetireAt40, thinking of enjoying his family more, surfing and contributing to good causes. “I don’t plan on leaving music for good, but I want more time to dedicate to what I like to do. I also think about having children and, who knows, recording an album for children. When I’m on an airplane and there’s any turbulence, I think to myself ‘this plane is going to crash’, and I go crazy thinking that I didn’t enjoy all the moments I’ve had with my loved ones as I could have. I think about going back home all the time”. Even if the future points to a certain distance from stages, Jason Mraz shouldn’t disappear from his fans line of sight. The only thing we can be sure of is that the singer will keep saying yes to life’s opportunities, exactly like the title of his new album.

THIRTEEN YEARS LATER… While some directors choose actors of different ages that look a lot alike to make aging in movies possible, moviemaker Richard Linklater chose the most difficult and organic way: he waited for his whole cast to naturally grow older so they could keep playing the same parts along the years. This “madness” required a lot of devotion and patience, since the movie “Boyhood” took 13 years to get ready. The movie tells the story of Mason (Ellan Coltrane), a boy who lives with his hard working mother (Patricia Arquette) and who, every now and then, receives visits from his father, a role brilliantly undertaken by Ethan Hawke. Debating themes such as sexuality, first loves, the difficulty of growing up and father-son relationship, the movie surprises with the emotional rollercoaster ride it puts the audience through, alternating between moments of laughing and crying. Another highlight of the movie is its soundtrack, very fitting with the scenes. Bottom line, if you like movies, this one is a must go to, not only because of its pioneer way of shooting, but also for portraying life in such a delicate way that you don’t find very often.

QUESTÃO DE PELE Sisley arrives in Brazil and brings along years of experience and research. Straight forward, Philippe d’Ornano, one of the label’s directors, opens up: “We are not organic, we are scientific”. More than a virtue, patience is the law for people like Philippe d’Ornano, who doesn’t settle for second best – and being the best is what Sisley, a cosmetic company founded by his father, Hubert, has done since its creation in 1976. Responsible for the label’s international development, Philippe knows leadership is always passing for those who don’t innovate and invest. “Our challenge is making even better skin care products. In order to achieve that, we must have a great knowledge of skin and men and women’s needs”, he explains. Even though, at first, his statement may sound a little cliché, the French businessman
soon exceeds expectations with his brutal honesty: “We are not an ecological or organic company. Our basis are purely scientific. We study skin’s physiology and look for substances that really matter, and, coincidentally or not, we found what we were looking for in herbal and other natural products, but we have never explored this matter as marketing”. Publicity never seems to be the goal for Sisley, they prefer letting the results of their endless researches and tests take on that job – and it’s ok if it takes a long time, because d’Ornano family has learned the value of waiting. “Some products may take ten years to be

ready. We never establish a time limit, a deadline for a research or tests. Our only demands are safe and real results, and we only launch a new product after making sure this is true, no matter how long we have to wait”, he reveals. The same principle guides the strategic parameters for the company, which has just opened first store to the country. At the Brazilian store, clients find Sisley’s biggest icons, like anti-aging cream Supremya Yeux, as well as recently launched products, such as L’eau Tropicale perfume and Sisleyouth anti-aging cream.

Five years into the restaurant, chef Angie Berry sought inspiration on the fresh flavors of her childhood, which she then introduced to the restaurant’s foie gras, smoked duck, ahi tartare and trout-based posh dishes. It is American cuisine at its best: its secret touches and innovative texture offer an unexpected tasting. The wine list is still the main star at Asiate, with over a thousand bottle from all over the world, besides novelties that explore less known eclectic vineyards. Prestigious design company Hok was responsible for the interior design. They now offer dining experiences with a panoramic view of Manhattan’s skyline and the Central Park. The new environment reflects the group’s urbanism and its Asian inheritance

Le Triomphe des LumiĂ¨res Paris is both the runway and the model. And it puts on a daily fashion show with its acquired shine. Paris is like a blinding light that, at the same time, allows you to see the beauty of a city that resists to the passing of time, almost without meaning to. LIFESTYLE 154 October 2014
