Paulo Mariotti Collection Launch
Frescobol Carioca is delighted to announce the launch of an exclusive collaboration with Brazilian artist Paulo Mariotti. The 6-piece capsule collection was launched this morning 9th May in the Champagne Rooms of the Connaught Hotel, London.
The artist arrived from Paris to play host to editors from GQ, Esquire, Vogue Brasil, Condé Nast Traveller, Mr Porter, Women’s Wear Daily and Fashion Beans. Members of the press were also joined by our special guest, Thiago Soares, principle dancer of the Royal Ballet, and a native Carioca.
The guests were greeted with a themed Brazilian Wellbeing breakfast, created by the hotel to reflect our Carioca roots, and featuring detoxifying green juices, as well as a specially formulated berry bowl showcasing Brazilian superfoods cocoa nibs, coconut and brazil nuts.
Following a brief speech from Mr. Mariotti, the guests were invited to discover the limited edition collection which comprises our tailored and sport short styles, plus a crisp white cotton T-shirt, all printed with original pen-and-ink drawings of Rio de Janeiro.
Created by the artist as a personal record of Rio de Janeiro, they were compiled into book form for Aqui Crônicas Cariocas and went on to be featured as a touring international exhibition.
The collection will be available to buy online next week, please sign up here to be alerted when the pieces go on sale.
