Between Vogue & Numero, Umbigo Magazine hits the Portugal Newsstands Feature Mercura NYC

Umbigo Magazine
Posted on March 20, 2012

Excitement at Frog Towers as the new issue of Umbigo Magazine hit the news stands in Portugal (not sure if it is sold anywhere else, it maybe sold in Brazil? And of course on the internet webs) this week! It’s a long established fashion magazine and it features editorials, art shows and global artists of multiple disciplines and this month’s issue has me on the cover, shot by the awesome internationally acclaimed and award winning photographer Joao Carlos. Some of the Bug Nation editorial is inside (the images that weren’t published by Papercut Magazine late last year) and the glasses are by the amazing ladies at Mercura NYC, who kit out the likes of Lady Gaga and Elton John. I love the Bug’s series, Joao and I made it so it was original and weird in the best of ways and combined vintage items from Outra Face de Lua in Lisbon alongside the Mercura NYC sunglasses and the odd prop from The House of Deads. Covers are exciting, I love them; especially when the magazine sits next to Vogue and Numero on the stands, it is snazzy.
