Brazil by Way of Farm Rio Makes Its Way to the West Coast

OLÁ, LOS ANGELES: Brazil-based clothing label Farm Rio sees the U.S. as its ticket to overseas expansion, with the company unveiling its first West Coast store on the heels of a New York door opening this past spring and one planned for Miami in the fall.
The 900-square-foot pop-up store opening this week at Westfield Century City is part of a larger strategy to grow the business in the U.S. before a broader global expansion.
Farm Rio was launched in 1997 by Katia Barros and Marcello Bastos and gained ground among consumers for its bold colors and tropical prints across a line that now includes dresses, jumpsuits, skirts, pants and tops. The brand now counts more than 70 stores in Brazil.
This year the company began laying the groundwork for U.S. expansion, first with the launch of an online shop in March. The following month Farm Rio opened a New York store, which the company said beat projections by 50 percent in its first month in business. In May there was a Surf Lodge pop-up, with Los Angeles now set to see the brand.

The Ice Boat (On the Road from Brazil to Siberia)

He wanted to piss against a wall. With plenty of drugs, sex and rock and roll; The Ice Boat is a modern pop-culture odyssey. Dave has almost got it all; with a rock star lifestyle, romance and a nice flat in London, he almost has the happiness he has worked for all his life. But his reluctance to compromise in love takes him away from London to disaster in Rio de Janeiro. Losing his identity, and his heart, to a scheming Brazilian siren, he manages to evade the corrupt music biz sharks and ends up living with three prostitutes in Amsterdam. This book navigates the seedy underbelly of the music world like a nuclear submarine; magic mushrooms, cocaine, romantic pornography, pop culture freaks, toilet sex, public sex and laughing in the face of death all put in a glimmering appearance in this edgy, international road thriller. Full of suspense and unresolved emotions, The Ice Boat is a real 20th Century odyssey that will have you laughing and crying. Somewhere between Ken Kesey or Jack Kerouac’s On the Road and Nick Kent’s Apathy for the Devil, it’s like a kind of two fingers up to those who mock real creativity and innocence in the performing arts. Buy Volume I and II together in one book, The Ice Boat 2 in 1, to make a great saving! Includes Chapter One of Ordo Lupus and the Temple Gate.
