Maybe it’s just residual jealousy that our senior fashion editor, Marina, got to spend the past two weeks in her native Brazil, but I’ve been dreaming of sunny São Paulo. So, it turns out, is photographer Todd Selby. For his first visit of the new year, Selby dropped in on Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch and his husband, Fabio, at home, and the complete photo set is well worth browsing for anyone, like me, fantasizing about a South American jaunt. The same slightly skewed style that runs through Herchcovitch’s collections is evident in his taste for decor, wide-ranging enough to include McDonald’s golden arches, vintage barber’s chairs, and framed portraits of Marge and Homer Simpson alongside antiques and contemporary design pieces. There’s news on the Herchcovitch horizon, too: This month, the designer presents his first-ever pre-fall collection.
