Madonna has one of the bags, Sting picked up a truck load of goods from the store in exchange for an autographed guitar and Marc Jacobs of Louis Vuitton loves their pieces; but this is a Brazilian designer we are talking about who most people have never heard of – Osklen. Set up at the end of the 1980s by mountaineer Oska Metsavaht, the first Brazilian to scale Mont Blanc, the focus of this brand is more sports-luxe than all-weather-wear, with cottons and silks combined with edgy tailoring to make on-trend casual essentials. Another Brazilian designer who has been pushed into the limelight in the last few weeks is Issa and its founder Daniella Helayel. In typical Carioca style she maintains that “an Issa dress can be worn from the beach to the office and then onto the red carpet.” All we know is that the hottest designers right now all call Rio de Janeiro their hometown! This month Dehouche are offering all those booking a holiday to Rio their own free personal shopper to guide them around all the city’s best boutiques for some retail therapy on holiday!
