Despite the recent Hypebeast article that paints a picture of Brasil as relatively ignorant in terms of streetwear culture, the recent 3rd edition of the URB Tradeshow in Sao Paulo definitely proves otherwise.

Pretty much every single Brazilian has heard this song to the point of nausea since it dropped back in November to begin the final hype up to the FIFA World Cup but chances are if you aren’t Brasileiro you haven’t and have no idea who MC Guime is. But since in about a month from now all eyes are going to be on Brasil we figured you might want to brush up on some of their relevant pop culture.

Urb Tradeshow Brasil

14 October 2013, 12.24 | Posted in Skateboarding, tradeshows | 1 comment »

While tradeshows are par for the course in the US and Europe, in emerging markets they are a big deal because they represent new closer ties with the global action sports industry. Even just a few years ago you might have had to get premium skate and snowboard gear from a re-seller that bought the stuff retail in the US and charged 5 times the price back home That’s why Brasil is stoked on their first ever skate and lifestyle specific tradeshow Urb. Happening on October 30 and 31, Urb has everyone from Levi’s to Toy Machine to Anti-Hero to Sk8mafia plus Brasilian brands like Future, Live, and Vida Libre. If you’re in Sao Paulo for Halloween, hit it up! Full info is here.
