A new video and new photos of Candice’s campaign for Animale Brasil have been released by Glamour, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar Brasil with three new interviews.
Candice Swanepoel says, “I hope one day I’ll have the freedom to live in Brazil again.”
Passing through Brazil, the model talked about motherhood and her relation with her body.
Candice Swanepoel was in Brazil for the photo shoot, and we took the opportunity to chat with the model and entrepreneur, who runs the Tropic of C beachwear brand and is passionate about Brazil. Check it out below.
How is your life? We noticed that you are in Brazil frequently, do you still live here?
I’m fine, but very busy juggling between my modeling career, my brand (the bikini brand Tropic of C) and striving to be the best mother possible. I moved to New York so I could work and not be so far away from my kids. Most of my work is there so for now that’s what works. I hope one day to have the freedom to live in Brazil again.
We always see you on the catwalks and photographing editorials, how would you describe your relationship with your body?
My body has undergone many changes in the last three years, since I had my two children. But it’s my temple. He gave me my most precious gifts. I may have some extra stretch marks, and not have the belly I had before, but I love my body. He gave me a lot.
You have a successful career as a model. What are some of your future plans? Do you plan to continue modeling?
I have many plans that are always evolving. Modeling has given me the opportunity to do so much, while I’m loving to do it I’ll continue. At the moment I’m realizing myself taking care of all aspects of Tropic of C, from style to visual communication. My goal is to have a balance between professional and personal life. And be happy!
Do you have any tips on the beauty of the moment?
I’m loving using serums instead of moisturizers now that it’s summer in the northern hemisphere. It’s been very hot in New York and they’re not that greasy on the skin.
What are some of the summer trends you can’t wait to use?
The new Tropic of C resort collection! I want to use everything.
How has motherhood changed your outlook on life?
Being a mom has changed my perspective on everything. You redefine your priorities and what you want your kids to see and learn. My priority in life is them, everything else I fit in from that.
You seem to have a genuine connection with Brazil, what do you love most here?
My connection to Brazil is old, since I was 17 years old in fact, so I grew up here partially. I left South Africa when I was 15, many of my memories of adult life are here. Brazil is amazing and it’s always hard to leave. I feel close to nature and my essence when I am here. The music, the food, the beaches and the people are full of life!
Glamour Brasil’s interview:
Candice Swanepoel returns as the face of the new Animale campaign.
The South African top is the star of the brand’s summer campaign!
Fashion news: Candice Swanepoel returns as the face of the new Animale campaign. The South African top posed intensely, poetically and confidently for the 2020 summer collection of the carioca brand. The starting point of the pieces was art, surrealism and the points and counterpoints from all over Spain, passing through cities like Barcelona and Madrid.
In an exclusive interview with Glamour Brasil, Candice tells a little about her relationship with fashion and being a woman today.
Check it out:
What are the essential pieces in your wardrobe?
My essential pieces are jeans of various colors (black, white and blue), basic white T-shirt, a black dress for the night, classic heel and sneakers. I also like different jewellery, to make the looks more personalized.
Who are your greatest inspirations when it comes to dressing?
I always get inspired by the 90’s, lots of jeans and some fun exaggerations, and vintage aesthetics.
If you could only choose one piece of clothing to wear every day, what would it be?
Denim! You can tie them in different ways, wear them when it’s sunny and hot, but also in the cold with pantyhose and knitwear. A yoke can turn into a skirt, a top, a dress… There are many possibilities! It’s very versatile.
What were the biggest life lessons you learned in your entire career as a model?
The basic lessons that every model should probably learn with his career: treat everyone with respect and equality.
What does being a woman mean to you?
Being a woman is very wonderful. To be a woman is to be strong and, at the same time, delicate. We represent affection and love in the world. Sister, mother, daughter, wife, grandmother… To be all this we need a special affection that only we have. Woman generates life! It is something magical. When I was pregnant, I felt even more connected to the universe.
Harper’s Bazaar Brasil:
CANDICE SWANEPOEL: “IT’S GREAT TO FEEL SEXY AGAIN AFTER HAVING A BABY”.
The model goes back to parade after the second pregnancy and is also an Animale advertising girl.
Candice Swanepoel is back! The model born in South Africa also has a Brazilian soul: She is a fan of the beaches of Espírito Santo. Parents of the boy Anacan Swanepoel Nicoli, the family grew in June 2018, when the boy Ariel Swanepoel Nicoli was born.
Recently, the top returned to the catwalks and also to the commercial work, photographing shooting for the brand Animale. Between one click and another, we talked to her about pregnancy, fashion and much more. Read it in full:
How did it feel to go back to parading after the pregnancy?
It was amazing! I was a little anxious because I was “coming back”, and I already knew I was pregnant again, so opening the parade keeping this little secret was very special. It’s really good and important to feel sexy again after having kids.
Now that you have two children, what has changed in your routine, and what remains the same?
Everything has changed! My children are my priority, and everything fits after them. I have to be much more organized and just do what’s really worth doing. What remains the same is…nothing! Laughter.
And what has changed in your exercise routine after pregnancy? What about the diet?
Now that my children are small and need me a lot, I don’t dedicate so much time to the gym, but I’m gradually reconciling. Caring for children requires a lot of physical effort. On diet, I eat what my babies eat, so it’s good. Proteins, rice, beans, vegetables and lots of fruit. I have to be an example for them.
What’s your relationship with Animale fashion?
I’ve worked with Animale, one of my first works in Brazil. It’s always very nice and the clothes are beautiful and I like to be part of the creation of the photos.
What are the pieces that you can’t miss for your summer bag?
The new pieces from my collection of bikinis, jeans shorts, skirts (to dance forró!) and a lot of cloths that I use as a yoke, skirt, or to put on my head.
