És tu.

Joana de Vasconcelos_Coração Independente Vermelho #1

Eu cá. Tu aí.

Eu cá, na província, terra de mouros, sol ardente, neste calor de braseiro entre as praias de cristal e a serra ondulante.

Tu aí, na cidade de gente de braços de ferro, naquela baía plantada entre um arco-íris de azul e verde.

Vivo entre linhas de asfalto que me levam a todos os locais onde algum dia já estivemos. Tudo me lembra de ti.

Vivo a cada dia para me recordar que sem ti não me conhecia; que mais valem mil quilómetros de distância do que um silêncio mudo e entorpecido.

Vivo e respiro contigo.

Vans revival

Kenzo-Vans spring summer 13

When I was a teenager, back in the 90’s, Vans made a huge success in Portugal.  All teens had Vans shoes. And so did I.

A refreshing revival and a successful collaboration between KENZO and Vans.
