MWFW 2013 icons, Derby, Stache and Tie arrived in Rio de Janeiro, primed to take in the beaches, nightlife and culture of this beautiful city. When they arrived at their hotel near the sultry Cobacabana Beach, Derby and Tie discovered that Stache had stuffed their suitcases overflowing with feathers and sequins. Unfortunately, they were too early for for the famous Carnival, which takes place in February of 2014, so Stache had to content himself with wearing the glittery garments to the beach at Ipanema.
While Stache would have liked to spend the whole visit on the beach, Derby and Tie insisted on taking in some culture and dragged him to visit the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer that rises above the city. Unfortunately, their close inspection of the statue’s face wasn’t exactly appreciated and they were roundly booed by the more devout visitors.
Their presence was more welcome at the Museu de Arte Moderna, where they were taken as an aspect of the abstract landscape designed by Brazilian architect Robert Burle Marx. The icons enjoyed their dinner at Porcão Rio’s, a popular restaurant in the Parque do Flamengo, before heading out to the Lapa neighborhood for an evening of music and samba dancing. Derby had too much to drink, Tie came all undone and Stache’s feathers tickled all of his dance partners.
