Beach chic, huh? Btw, I'm glad those poorly designed Am. Apparel ads are gone.

That's a great look on that guy.Oh, the beach...sunny Spain is shut down by snow, believe it or not.

Perfect composition of the photo. With these yellow and blue accents. Just love it!!

RIOO.. so much colors!!
one of the most beautiful beaches of my country.. I recommend jericoacoara!


Anonymous Natasha said ... (2:57 PM) : 

the colours in this are lovely :) i love the scarf tied around his waist too not many men would think to do that


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:00 PM) : 

Nice blues contrasting with the yellow chairs and shades of Ipanema beach. I was there 2 weeks ago. Take me back!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Hmm. I don't really get what you're seeing here. Is it the sash around his waist?


Blogger Maria José said ... (3:10 PM) : 

oh! I love it! I want summer, and his sunglasses!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:12 PM) : 

Mr. Rubinacci is my number one male fashion icon.

And this is seriously the best of him yet!

Thank you dear Sart

LOVE the teal sunglasses.


Blogger Diya said ... (3:25 PM) : 

somehow all of the colors come together beautifully on him. I would have never thought to dress in an all blue-purple palette.


Blogger Tristan said ... (3:26 PM) : 

That is cool man, real cool.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:32 PM) : 

good looking, but kinda outof place there! i like the bracelets and the shirt and the shoes (in his hand) but still he looks out of place there at the beach

I need sunshine:) Cool glasses, cool shirt, cool guy:)

Everything about this makes me have an intense desire to get to Rio now. Like, right now.

Anonymous audrey said ... (3:34 PM) : 

I love the colours, especially his scarf/cummerbund? and all the yellows.


Blogger Michael Tornato said ... (3:38 PM) : 

I am in LOVE with this mans scarf! I like how he uses it around his waist due to the heat rather than around his neck! Very unusual, but practical. His glasses scream, "I am just this cool!" His shirt is too much for me, but I like it on him. He wears his bracelets the same way I do mine. I guess that is because he is Brazilian and I am Argentinian. Oh, the beautiful scenery! LOVE IT.

Is this on the Ipanema beach? Just seems really familiar... ohh how great is Rio(L)!

The teal sunglasses! Impeccable.


Blogger Petitbill said ... (4:14 PM) : 

I can feel the hot sand under his feet!!!
Here (Paris) I'm under the snow.


Blogger Jenious said ... (4:20 PM) : 

I’m not sure what I adore more---the loafers clutched in hand or the scarf around his waist. It's beach style in all of its glory!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Wow I really like all the mix of colors in this.


Anonymous princess glee said ... (4:23 PM) : 

I fell in love with his steely blue-eyed gaze and his eclectic use of color. Can't see the eyes here but I'm lovin' the blues and the lavender.


Blogger Johanna Urban said ... (4:26 PM) : 

Barefoot in the sand!!! How lovley, I would love to walk barefoot in the sand, but it's a half meter snow outside my house... so it would be pretty cold!!!

like this picture :)



Blogger Friend in Fashion said ... (4:38 PM) : 

Great photograph - adore the colour!


Blogger Sabine said ... (4:39 PM) : 

One cool guy! Just the idea to walk around barefeet and in floaty summer clothes makes me wanna cry... Rio must have been great!


Blogger Kasey said ... (4:46 PM) : 

Phew, that is sooo nice. I love the effortless pairing of colors. I never thought of light blue and lilac. I have those colors but wasn't happy with the combos I made and was ready to give away a lovely pair of linen slacks but this example breathes new life into my wardrobe. Thanks so much!

Wow...I think he´s at Ipanema beach

Blogger perezvila™ said ... (5:02 PM) : 

cicade malavilhosa..............


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:04 PM) : 

Wonder what colour the loafers he is carrying are? Blue? It's a very interesting ensemble in which everything contrasts despite the number of blues involved. I wonder too if Rubinacci would wear this in Italy?


Blogger Erica said ... (5:11 PM) : 

Fabulous colors all around. I love the pastel blue shorts.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:12 PM) : 

I'm in love. The shirt, the glasses and especially the scarf/belt. Great look.


Blogger 659 kilómetros said ... (5:16 PM) : 

great photo, Scott. I love the sand, it looks almost unreal, and the touches of bright yellow...


Blogger Izzen said ... (5:18 PM) : 

Loving the blue shirt / purple scarf combination.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:23 PM) : 

Nice one!

Every single piece of garment in itself are just awful, but together they make a very nice outfit.


Blogger Jacqueline said ... (5:23 PM) : 

Great shot. I love his beach comfy, yet chic attire. He pulls this look off effortlessly. xoxo


Blogger Erin said ... (5:23 PM) : 

I could do without the purple scarf - I think it makes it seem a bit affected. his shirt and watch and great focal points; the scarf's color is lovely but it takes away from them. maybe if his sunglasses were that purple it would be a better combination. but he does look great as usual, always gotta love Luca


Anonymous Liz B./NYC Style said ... (5:32 PM) : 

THANK YOU for keeping us abreast of Luca! I miss the amazing blue eyes but...well, blue frames are nice too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:37 PM) :

Amazing photo ! Hey you gotta do a book signing here in Brazil !


Blogger Shave said ... (5:42 PM) : 

This dude has the A'tude!
Love the shirt, sash and the shades. He's not walkin' the beach, he's struttin'!

Field Note: Those background boys are Eye Ballin' you!



Anonymous FashionLover said ... (5:48 PM) : 

I can't believe you are in Brasil! It's so hot here right?! I'm spending all of my school vacations in the pool! But, I wish i could go to Fashion Rio... Anyway, Luca's clothes are very cool, but doesn't look like something that a brazilian person would use to go to the beach. Is he a tourist?


Blogger Bob Spears said ... (5:50 PM) : 

Nice cool look for the beach. A Brazilian can pull off the purple scarf around the waist. I think I would have a hard time doing that here. Shooting at the beach is tough. Nice photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:50 PM) : 

Great use of color. I'm not sure about the shoes.


Anonymous LIZPR said ... (5:56 PM) : 

Oh my god. I just LOVE this ... it's so casual, but he took the time to pick a patterned shirt, purple scarf...and check out the shades!! lol

Oh summer... I really miss the summer..


Blogger Holly said ... (6:14 PM) : 

I'd love to be in that sunny weather now!


Blogger Will said ... (6:40 PM) : 

Totally love this! Truth be told, though, I'd rather be wearing this on a quieter beach with a few friends than at the mega-crowd beach. But he does make it work.


Blogger Mr Brown said ... (6:43 PM) : 

Shorts. Pale blue.

Pale blue is a killer colo(u)r.

A silent killer.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 PM) : 

This is exactly how I would picture him at the beach. The sash actually ties everything together despite being a contrasting piece; the blues would be too disparate otherwise. He is hit or miss with me, but this one is right on: daring, colorful, true to the surroundings but also true to himself, and dead sexy.

Beautiful photograph, too, composition and depth of field are ideal.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 PM) : 

To all who asked: yes, it is Ipanema Beach, and today we had 40ºC. A marvelous sunny day !!!

As a voice from the frozen north, I love the sun and the colour. What a great photo.

Oh, cool you're here! Nice picture! Hope you're having a good time despite of the hot weather.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:22 PM) : 

His accessories give him a real flair but I don't think those shorts do him or his look justice!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:37 PM) : 

Great!! Finaly you are in Brasil!!! Welcome!!! I recommend Arpoador in sunset.


Blogger Rio Etc. said ... (9:06 PM) : 

Great, this is RIO!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 PM) : 

Gotta love those glasses. I really think the whole outfit would be very boring if he were wearing a standard pair.

He's got the right blend of kitsch, masculine and cool.
Good for him because he is pulling it off famously!


Blogger Vinda Sonata said ... (9:36 PM) : 

what a beautiful man with a very relaxed style. what a perfect specimen :)


Anonymous Ricardo said ... (9:41 PM) : 

Looks stunning, but let's face reality: nobody (except tourists) steps down the sand in Ipanema under this incredibly hot Sun wearing those shoes and in a long sleeve shirt. It seems as if he was walking down the sidewalk in Av. Vieira Souto and was taken to be pictured there... The picture and looks are amazing anyway. It is a great Welcome to Rio with its natural and casual glam.


Blogger Eriko said ... (9:53 PM) : 

oh, it's beautiful


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:54 PM) : 

Why do American men never utilize beautiful colors like these? I love that lavender scarf. Color is truly the essence of fashion, yet so many stores limit the colors of men's accessories...blah colors like burgundy, moss green, and the absolute worst...gray. We should learn from this guy!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:12 PM) : 

That scarf right around his waist makes him look like a modern sheik or something. He looks really cool. I love how he plays up the blue with his shirt and glasses. I wish I could get a closer look at that bracelet he's wearing. It looks really colorful.



Blogger Dian Prad said ... (10:41 PM) : 

exquisite :)

how nice he wore that shirt

i think Brazil is very exotic place for holiday and fashion inspirations

love this pic

Blogger Nadine2point0 said ... (10:53 PM) : 

So now I want to be in Brazil on the beach wearing something like this... possibly be the coolest 'thrown together' outfit I've seen on sand. It looks like this guy is completely submerged in Vay Kay mode and your photo has taken me there.....
for a few moments at least while we endure the snowy chill in Ontario, Canada.

ohhh I love Brazil!want to go the photo!

Blogger Jonathan said ... (1:46 AM) : 

he's dressed for the beach but he knows he's not going in the water with that watch, sari-ish cloth or those glasses. here we have a man who is sure of what's doing and where he is.
how often does an outfit actually give this much away about personality?


Anonymous kalliste-Greece! said ... (2:44 AM) : 

Ilike very much men who experimate and are bold as it refers to their choices of colors..That means not afraid to compinate other colors than the 'safe' one as black,white and the 'earth colors'...You captured the 'right moment'and i like it a lot...Love the shirt.KISSES......!

Blogger Geraldine Ryan said ... (3:08 AM) : 

Hey, over in the UK we're all freezing. I'd like to look at how people can look good dressed for the cold. It's easy to slap on a pair of shorts and look good when you've got a physique like his and a healthy tan.

Rio, I love you....such a unique place- the mix of nature and the interests and conforts of a big city (movies, theaters, restaurants, museums, shops, malls, nightlife), the beautiful colors, the amazing light, the uncomparable energy and vitality of the city and its people, the laidback charming sophistication...

And I didnt mention the breathtaking landscapes...


Anonymous Bruno RS said ... (8:35 AM) : 

What, no book signing? How come?

Welcome to Rio, come back often. I"m sure you'll find many more interesting characters if you're able to spend a few more days, and not just with the fashion crowd. Rio locals incorporate the mix between the urban and beach styles vey well, it's quite unique.

To all of you suffering with the cold and snow, we are sort suffering as well - it's 40ºC outside! Though we do have the beach. Who am I kidding, Rio rocks, I wouldn't trade it for any other city in the world, and I've had my share of living abroad. Come and visit us, you'll surely have a great time. Abraços!

The photo is beautiful and the yellow captured in the background make it richier...I'm Brazilian and although I have not enjoyed Summer time in Rio lately I have to agree with FashionLover...his look is not normal in Brazil.

Great photo, colors, his pose...
but the dude style its a bit "girly" for my taste...
But it's nice to see that, he is bold


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:10 PM) : 

very bold of him. The sunglasses are a little tacky but he almost pulls them off.


Blogger Oddysseus said ... (10:52 PM) : 

With the combination of sunglasses and sash, I would be very, very surprised if this man was altogether not of a certain persuasion. Sure it's stylish, if sort of tacky, and fun, in a look-at-me-oh-why-don't-you-look-at-me kind of way, but the overall image is one of being over the top.
