If you are looking for something unique to buy in Brazil, something with a little more sophistication and appeal, tropical inspired, with excellent design and somewhat affordable price (specially considering the quality) there is no way to go wrong with Francesca Romana Diana.
An Italian who has adopted Rio and Brazil as her home, she not only takes inspiration from the Brazilian natural wonders but she is also smart to partner with Brazilian photographers, painters, architects and personalities to keep her collections as fresh as possible.
I also have prepared a sneak peak into Francesca's world below with some of my favorite pieces, starting with her Rio de Janeiro inspired collection:
No wonder The New York Times has recently featured Francesca in their style section here and her iconic Rio de Janeiro line is being sold at the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) in NYC. Speaking of which, the brand is being launched into the US market at a Soho Pop-Up shop this next Monday, December 8th.*
Tempted enough? You can visit here to find out where you can buy Francesca (the brand has representatives outside of Brazil). Francesca's jewelry in now available for on-line purchase in the U.S. here.
