(São Paulo, Brazil) – On November 6th, the Iguatemi Glass House in São Paulo hosted Gisele Bündchen, Carlos Jereissati Filho, and Giovanni Bianco for an exclusive book signing for Gisele’s hotly anticipated, limited Collector’s Edition Taschen coffee-table book chronicling her 20-year fashion career.
The glamourous evening, attended by Carol Trentini, Isabeli Fontana, Scott Eastwood, was held a private residence owned by Carlos Jereissati Filho, CEO of Iguatemi.
Iguatemi is the leading port of entry for luxury brands in Brazil – Prada, Miu Miu, Goyard, Tod’s, Bottega Veneta, Dolce & Gabbana, Tory Burch, Van Cleef & Arpels, and many more opened their first South American flagships at Iguatemi.
With more than 300 photographs, this large-scale Collector’s Edition is curated and art directed by Giovanni Bianco. From Gisele’s legendary nude portrait by Irving Penn, chosen as the book’s cover, to iconic shots from such industry luminaries as Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh, David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and Corinne Day, it is a unique artistic presentation of the most famous Brazilian export together with Pelé and Senna and the highest-earning model in the world.
Opened in 2014, the Iguatemi Glass House is a Mies van der Rohe-inspired structure featuring a combination of Brazilian modernist furniture and international design pieces. Carlos Jereissati, CEO of Iguatemi, uses the home to entertain Iguatemi’s VIP clients and international guests, strengthening Iguatemi’s status as the pioneer of luxury in Brazil. It also plays host to fashion shows, talks and workshops, establishing a synergy between the brands Iguatemi carries and their clients.
