By Euronews  with Reuters

<p>Sao Paulo Fashion Week kicked off on Monday with a dose of old-school rock-n’-roll swagger care of Iggy Pop.</p> <p>The American singer was on hand to launch Chilli Beans’ latest sunglasses collection in collaboration with Swarovski.</p> <p>After draping himself over a gigantic pair of sunglasses, the bare-chested front man of The Stooges turned with an encrusted staff to smash the lenses behind him. </p> <p>The evening progressed into a much more contained affair, as Brazilian brand Animale unveiled its 2016 Spring/Summer collection of geometric A-line skirts and leg-lengthening waist-high cuts in bass blacks and blocks of coral red.</p> <p>The look was softened with panels of sheer fabrics and open floral blouses, but it was the simplicity of the details which delighted the audience most.</p> <p>“I loved the show, I really like the minimalist trend which is in at the moment, there were a lot of cut-outs, open pieces in very strategic places. It was really really cool, I liked it a lot,” audience member Antonela Tah told Reuters after the show. </p> <p>“Brazilian fashion is very globalised. It is very similar to Paris, New York, Milan. You can see that the stylists are impeccable. Today I saw Animale, the collection is marvellous,” fashion blogger Marcia Boscardan added.</p> <p>As punk stunts gave way to haute-couture, <span class="caps">TNG</span> later turned on a swinging country-club feel with watercolour florals and 40’s halters and blazers.</p> <p>The much awaited highlight of the week will be Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen’s final catwalk show. The world’s highest-earning model of the past eight years, according to Forbes magazine, says she intends to focus more on print campaigns and family life.</p>
