Feet in Rhythm

By Jo Phillips

Ginga is the pleasure, rhythm, joy and the Brazilian idea of cool, fluid movement. The spirit of fluid Brazilian movement,
 an almost mystical quality of rhythm and flow
 therefore Ginga goes hand in hand with the beat of Brazilian music, which is of course the great inspiration for Capoeira dancers and Carnival performers. It was this feeling that inspired the creation of Mo:vel trainers. The brand was born from a team of four united by a common interest – to bring the power of healthy movement into the world of footwear fashion (after all móvel means mobile or moving in Brazilian Portuguese).

Mo:vel have collaborated with several artists in order to have really fresh designs.

Brazilian graphic designer André Coelho Moreira has over twelve years experience under his belt, having worked with some of the worlds biggest brands, Nike, Philips, and Brahma to name a few.
He has now collaborated with a launch collection of Mo:vel trainers with his designs influenced by the rhythms of Axé and Bossa Nova of all things.
