Carnaval 2007

Em 2007 relembramos uma das figuras folclóricas de grande expressão e que ilustrou nossa infância através do “Sitio do Pica-Pau Amarelo”. De cachimbo na boca e chapéu vermelho, só podemos estar falando do Saci.

A Lenda do Saci data do fim do século XVIII. Durante a escravidão, as amas-secas e os caboclos-velhos assustavam as crianças com os relatos das travessuras dele. Seu nome no Brasil é de origem Tupi Guarani. Em muitas regiões do Brasil, o Saci é considerado um ser brincalhão enquanto que em outros lugares ele é visto como um ser maligno.

É uma criança, um negrinho de uma perna só que fuma um cachimbo e usa na cabeça uma carapuça vermelha que lhe dá poderes mágicos, como o de desaparecer e aparecer onde quiser. Existem 3 tipos de Sacis: O Pererê, que é pretinho, O Trique, moreno e brincalhão e o Saçurá, que tem olhos vermelhos. Ele também se transforma numa ave chamada Matiaperê cujo assobio melancólico dificilmente se sabe de onde vem.

Ele adora fazer pequenas travessuras, como esconder brinquedos, soltar animais dos currais, derramar sal nas cozinhas e fazer tranças nas crinas dos cavalos. Diz a crença popular que dentro de todo redemoinho de vento existe um Saci. Ele não atravessa córregos nem riachos. Alguém perseguido por ele, deve jogar cordas com nós em seu caminho que ele vai parar para desatar os nós, deixando que a pessoa fuja.

E nas brincadeiras da vida, quem nunca pulou em uma perna só? E foi assim, em uma perna só, que o bloco saiu no dia 11 de fevereiro de 2007 com o samba "Samba na Praça, o Partido que Não Partiu – Lá Vem o Saci".

Wednesday’s news that Marc

Wednesday’s news that Marc Jacobs would make his Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 show his last as the creative leader michael kors of the brand was a lot of things, but it wasn’t exactly surprising. Rumors had been swirling for months that talks to extend Jacobs’ 16-year tenure at the brand weren’t going louis vuitton anywhere, and in the days before the show, news outlets like Women’s Wear Daily reported that the decision had been gucci outlet made that Jacobs would leave to focus on expanding his own brand, in which LVMH is a major investor. It’s a major move that has a lot of implications across the fashion industry, starting with the rumors about who will take over at Louis Vuitton and what it means for the brand’s bags.

With michael kors outlet all that in mind, the split between Jacobs and Vuitton may prove to be a well-timed one for both sides of the business. It still seems strange to consider a post-Marc louis vuitton outlet Jacobs Louis Vuitton, but undoubtedly, the show will go on for all involved.
As much as Jacobs’ tenure at Vuitton is associated with prolific handbag sales and the emergence of Vuitton’s enormous Christian Louboutin Outlet profile among fashion lovers, the move (which Jacobs’ claims was made the morning of the Spring 2014 show – I’m not sure that I believe him) comes at a fortuitous time gucci bags for brand. LVMH has made no bones about its desire to steer Louis Vuitton in the direction of more traditional luxury, and Jacobs’ aesthetic has always been more driven by splashy louis vuitton handbags visuals and pop culture references than by what looks or feels obviously expensive. That served LV well for the better part of two decades, but as the tastes of high-end consumers michael kors outlet shift to something more streamlined and, at times, discreet, it only makes sense that a change in creative talent would hasten Vuitton’s aesthetic shift. Not to mention that attaching a new louis vuitton purses name to a brand can powerfully alter consumer expectations and perceptions, beyond those based purely on aesthetics. If Vuitton wants to ask consumers to think of it differently, offering a completely louis vuitton new perspective increases the odds that consumers will be willing to listen.
That leaves Marc Jacobs, of course. He and LVMH head Bernard Arnault have gone out of their way to assure louis vuitton the public that the parting of Jacobs and Vuitton is an amicable one. (Jacobs thanked him by name in his final show’s notes, and they did an interview together afterward.) The louis vuitton bags most oft-heard explanation (and the one reiterated by Jacobs himself) for the split is that he wants to focus on his own brands, which have grown slightly dusty by certain measures Michael Kors Outlet in recent years. The company recently expanded into cosmetics, though, and with the kind of brand recognition that they have, there’s certainly room and opportunity to grow with all of Jacobs’ louis vuitton outlet creative energy focused on their revival. The hope seems to be for an IPO in the next few years, perhaps inspired by Michael Kors’ recent public offering.
