THE MAJESTIC ADVENTURES OF OFELIA DE SOUZA

The Majestic Adventures of Ofelia de Souza, a video produced by KOBU Agency, guides the viewer through the best that North of Portugal have to offer.

“The Majestic Adventures of Ofelia de Souza” is a video that guides the viewer through the best that Porto and the North of Portugal have to offer to the business tourist. This video is guided by experienced travel planner and soul epicurist – the new ambassador for business tourism in Porto & North of Portugal – Ofelia de Souza.

For KOBU Agency casting the perfect actress was a priority as it was crucial to find someone who could grasp Ofelia’s distinctive personality and her particular savoir-être. Luckily Kimberley Pearl had precisely what it took to embody such a memorable persona. It’s a pleasure to see Kimberley Pearl representing this captivating persona wearing VAVA cat-eye BL0029.

Ofelia de Souza is the personification of the North of Portugal, ambassador of its people’s strong personality and resilient spirit and a representative of the quality, vanguardism and ambition of the entire region as a business and entrepreneurship hub. VAVA’s presence in this project is not a matter of chance, seeing that our head office is located in the North of Portugal.

CASA DA MÚSICA | PORTO

Designed by Kem Koolhaas, the Casa da Música is a reputable contemporary concert hall in Porto, built to mark the festive year of 2001 in which the city was designated European Capital of Culture.

Rem Koolhaas decided to use glass walls allowing the population to see what is going on inside the monument, from concerts or rehearsals of the symphonic orchestra of Porto to students working at the cafe on the ground floor. The architect wanted the building to be part not only of the cultural and social life of Porto but also invite everyone to join Casa da Música.

VAVA feels deeply connected with this concept because also the brand only uses GLASS sun lenses. VAVA believes that only the natural purity of the glass can ensure the best optical precision of a lens and the inalterability of its characteristics in time, along with its typical and unique transparency.

VAVA uses exclusively Barberini lenses. For many years, Barberini has been a synonym of excellence in the optical glass sun lenses segment. Barberini was among the first companies in the field to achieve the UNI EN ISO 14001 Environmental Certification, meaning that all its manufacturing plants have zero-waste status.

D. LUIS I BRIDGE | PORTO

In this picture, you can see Ponte D. Luis I, the city’s emblematic iron bridge. The double-deck metal arch structure spans the River Douro between the cities of Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia.

In 1879, Gustave Eiffel presented a project to construct a new bridge over the Douro, with a high single deck in order to facilitate ship navigation. This project was rejected due to dramatic growth of the urban population, which required a re-thinking of the limits of a single-deck platform.  It was to be administrated by Théophile Seyrig, a disciple of Gustave Eiffel and author of the project.

Porto Historic Centre and Ponte D. Luis I, alongside the Monastery of Serra do Pilar, have been classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996.

LELLO BOOKSTORE | PORTO

The Lello Bookstore, commonly known in Portuguese as Livraria Lello, is a bookstore located in Porto and, certainly one of the most iconic places in the world. The building’s exterior has a mixed architectural suggesting Neo-Gothic, and Art Nouveau elements, and in the interior, implied Art Deco elements.
