Caps, Creativity and Capoeira
We love theses images of our summer linen collection of caps. The inspiration was the Brazilian martial art Capoeira which founder Rhian did in her twenties for a number of years. The fluidity of movement was perfect for our photoshoot with dancers and really suited the vibrancy of the summer caps. They really capture our ‘Express Yourself’ vibe.
Capoeira (pronounced cap-wearer- very appropriate ) is a Brazilian martial art form, combining self-defence, acrobatics, dance, music and song.
It was developed by slaves who used it to disguise the fact that they were practising fight moves. Capoeira is 'played' (it's known as the 'game', or jogo) in a circle called a roda, accompanied by music and singing.
Capoeira has become popular worldwide and can be found in most cities around the world.
