At its peak, the Portuguese Empire stretched from South America to Africa, India, and Southeast Asia, lasting nearly five centuries, longer than its British, Spanish, and French counterparts. The sun has long set on Portugal’s imperial ambitions, but the very fact that to this day Portuguese churches still stand in Goa, India or that Brazilians speak Portuguese (not Spanish like its South American neighbors) means the influence endures. Enter Fernanda Liz, Brazilian stunner and star of an evocative editorial running in the August 2017 issue of Vogue Portugal. Photographed by Frederico Martins in the picturesque town of Sousel in Porto Alegre, Portugal, the story titled “Light & Dusk” celebrates fall fashion in a muted palette of earth tones. To that end, Fernanda (pictured) wears a corduroy velvet jacket by Prada standing on location at Herdade do Arrepiado Velho, site of a winery of the same name. The story is rich with history, but endowed with a living, breathing beauty in Fernanda Liz who makes it a contemporary affair.
