Denim, surfing, Rio...taken together, this trio brings to mind one model and one model only, Marlon Teixeira. Indeed, the Brazilian model features on the May 2013 cover of L’Officiel Hommes Korea photographed by Lope Navo. Set on the beaches of Ipanema, Marlon looks well at home in the sand and surf wearing little more than the latest in spring denim with some incidental seawater added for good measure. However inconceivable denim is for the beach let alone surfing, leave it to Marlon Teixeira to christen jeans as this summer’s go-to fabric.
