Rachel's Faves: Brazil

"When I visited Brazil I was so inspired by the vibrancy of the country. The essence of Brazil comes through in so many different forms."
- RR

Favorite Place to Stay
Hotel Fasano is the best place to stay in Rio - it captures the open, confident essence of Brazil in the most modern and elegant way possible, and the service is outstanding.

Meaningful Symbols
Seu Jorge taught me about symbols and saints that were meaningful to him which we incorporated into our collaboration product. He is all about offering strength and good energy.

Best Beach
Copacabana Beach in Rio has amazing people watching. Equal parts soulful and sexy. I really loved speaking to the local artisans on the beach that come right up to you with their works of art. Each one was kind and genuine. 

My Brazilian Soundtrack
Seu Jorge's albums were the soundtrack to our trip - he is an amazing and talented man.

What to See
Cristo Redentor Statue in Rio de Janeiro is the largest art deco statue in the world, and a breathtaking work of art. It is a spiritual journey! 

Favorite Adult Drink
Caipirnha's - Brazil's national cocktail, I loved sipping these on the beach while soaking in the sexy beach trends!

Where to Eat
Enjoy a traditional Brazilian meal in the heart of the city at Claude Trisgros' Olympe Restuarant in Rio - one of the best meals of my life!

Bathing Suit of Choice
Brazilian designer Rosa Cha makes amazing bathing suits that are so unique and bring to life the color and art of Brazil.
