Vintage Skateboards

Já conhecemos o Miguel Melo de outros carnavais e de outras obsessões.

Mas esta é irresistível, porque são objectos e é uma colecção.

Podemos tentar perceber a relação da tipologia com a evolução e escolha dos materiais, assim como conhecer marcas e variações estéticas.

O que isto ainda vai ser, talvez nem o próprio saiba. Mas para já temos um levantamento em vias de crescimento e um gosto, que é novo por cá, pela memorabilia desportiva.

We have we met Miguel Melo from other times and other obsessions.

Bt this one is irresistible, because it is with objects and it is a collection.

We can start understanding the relation of the typology with the evolution and choice of the materials, as well as know the brands and the aesthetic variations.

What this will still be in the future, he might not know himself. But for now we have a survey to grow and a taste, which is new around here, for the sports memorabilia.
