Story & photos by Ivan Guerrero FB Collection is a luxury menswear and beachwear brand from Rio de Janeiro, founded in 2009.
The Spring/ Summer 2013 Collection takes inspiration from Rio(of course), the cariocas and the colonial architecture of Lapa district as shown in the 'Cine Lapa' painting by Caio Locke ( see the print of the swim trunk below). Pink candy, mint and deep blue colourful selection.
The Frescobol beach bats (above) are handcrafted by Brazil's local marceneiros (cabinetmakers) and reinvented by the incorporation of very beautiful wood offcuts.(Frescobol is a popular Brazilian sport invented in Copacabana's neighborhood between 1945 and 1946 by Lian Pontes de Carvalho).
