Whether or not readers in the colder northern climes are staring at their smartphones held between numb fingers reading this, the January 2014 cover story of Harper’s Bazaar Brasil featuring Daniela Braga is sure to fire the imagination. Titled “Sonho Tropical,” or “tropical dream” em Português, this story photographed by Bob Wolfenson trains its eye on swimwear, the wardrobing staple for Brazil in January. To that end, Dani is photographed in the soft summer light of Brazilian summer in various one and two-piece swimsuits that by end ought to have nearly everyone dreaming of the tropics.
