A Ópera da Lua

Yesterday we went to an expo called “A Ópera da Lua” (The Moon Opera) from Gustavo and Otávio Pandolfo, two plastic artists that also happen to be twin brothers. They mixtured diferent techniques, colorful textures and plenty of symbols that evoke the world of the oniric to compose an “opera” that feels nostalgic but vibrant and optimistic as well. (more…)

I wore my first pair of jeans at preschool: they had typographic textures at the knees and were provided to every student in public school at the beginning of the year, so everyone was wearing them too. I refused to wear such a mainstream piece so I only wore them once. It was until the age of twelve or so when I got the coolest vintage bottom-zippered jeans from my aunt that I surrendered to denim love. Then, I went from American-flag patched ones to a loudly paneled fuchsia pair. I guess I just didn’t like plain denim, even though I wore the no visible sewing lines jeans that were so trendy at the time, proving that marketing when done right can sell you pretty much anything.
