BRINGING BRAZIL TO YOU
Feel like you’re walking along the Copacabana—even if you’re just cruising around town with a café-longo or cooling out with a happy-hour caipirnha and bossa nova in the late afternoon sun. Step out in Havaianas and step into a Brazilian state of mind this summer wherever you are.
SIP A FRESH COCONUT
Grab a straw and cool off with one of the hippest refreshments this summer: a freshly tapped coconut. Paired with Havaianas, this ultra-hydrating elixir is a summer style statement.
ORDER A CAFÉ-COM-LEITE
Seek out Brazil’s famous coffee and try chocolates sourced from Bahia and Pará for an ultra-authentic coffee break.
SAMBA A SATURDAY AFTERNOON AWAY
Find a local spot with live samba bands, order up a caipirinha pitcher, and dance the late afternoon away in your Havaianas.
SAVOR THE PERFECT CAIPIRINHA
Pick up fresh limes and a bottle of cachaça, and check out recipes online for delicious variations on Brazil’s national cocktail incorporating juices, like guava and passion fruit.
GET FIT WITH CAPOEIRA
Sign up for a beginner’s class to learn the basics of this Afro-Brazilian dance-martial art form and then “ginga” your way into bikini shape with this super-aerobic workout.
SNAP UP A SUPERMODEL SWIMSUIT
Get Brazil’s modern take on the classic yellow polka dot bikini with signature swimwear lines, like Sao Paulo-born designer Neila Granzoti Rudden’s diNeila.
KICK BACK WITH BOSSA NOVA
Find an artisan cocktail lounge or local jazz club with a sultry bossa nova soundtrack, a musical genre fusing samba and jazz popularized in the 1950s and 1960s.
DISCOVER RODISIO-STYLE BBQ
Head to a local churrascarias to experience rodisio-style dining. Pay a prix-fixe, or preço fixo, and then enjoy ample serving of freshly grilled beef, pork, and chicken.
ADD COLOR TO YOUR HOME
Accent your apartment with some Sao Luis-inspired, statement tiles renowned for their vivid designs in bright colors like tejo blue, white, turquoise, and yellow.
THROW ON A WOVEN SUNHAT
Pair a handcrafted, Barreirinhas-style straw hat with a pair of chic sunglasses for a carefree day in the park or at the beach.
GET A RENDA DI BILROS-STYLE COVERUP
Pick up a handmade crochet top, which has become a trendy summer staple, from a site like Etsy for a look that nods to Brazil’s traditional bobbin lacemakers.
