SÃO PAULO, Brazil — In emerging markets like India and China, luxury shopping malls have often struggled to successfully take root. Quality and execution issues have plagued many of India’s new shopping centres, while, apart from the very best developments, many of China’s large-scale malls are often worryingly empty. But despite the fact that the sun is always shining and the breeze is always blowing, Brazil’s luxury malls are booming.
Although overall economic growth in the country is slowing, Iguatemi Empresa de Shopping Centers, one of Brazil’s biggest mall operators, expects net sales to rise 25 to 30 percent in 2012, according to its first-quarter earnings report, released last month, and plans to open or expand eight malls by 2015.
Here in São Paulo, the recent opening of the $154.8 million JK Iguatemi mall, the Iguatemi Group’s thirteenth in Brazil and third in São Paulo, sparked a frenzy amongst the city’s upper and middle classes. The hotly anticipated new mall — which opened two months later than expected after Iguatemi ran into trouble obtaining local permits to build new access roads capable of handling an expected 20,000 shoppers a day — is the veritable talk-of-the-town, not least because the complex houses South America’s first Lanvin, Van Cleef & Arpels and Topshop stores, alongside offerings from Burberry, Bottega Veneta, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, DVF, Prada and Tory Burch.
Richard Kane is a social scientist, Brazilianist and entrepreneur on a quest to introduce as many students, faculty and professionals from around the world to Brazil as possible.

He has found his dream job serving as an academic advisor, internship coordinator, career counselor and study tour coordinator for the Family and Consumer Sciences department at Illinois State University.
Born in Chicago the son of an orphaned Teamster and an angel of Swedish decent, Richard developed a relentless curiosity about the world and its people. His quest to understand how society works has been rewarding, but not easy.
He used to be a student, confined by postmodernism until the day he escaped the classroom and flew to the most exciting country on earth. Immediately upon landing in Rio, he followed the intellectual path of its president and became a sociologist.
Richard has spent decades covering Brazil – a vast and enigmatic land native to Guarani Indians, founded by Portuguese explorers, developed by Jesuit priests, and described by the French as the eternal country of the future.
By means of study tours, internships and the internet, Richard aims to connect professionals with students and faculty from around the world who share an interest in how basic human needs for food, shelter and clothing are met through architecture, interior design and fashion; food, nutrition and dietetics; human and family development; as well as consumer behavior and entrepreneurship in Brazil and the surrounding provinces.
Richard’s work is inspired by entrepreneurs and artists, and is informed by historians and indigenous peoples. Trained as a percussionist, he is moved by music, particularly house and the mixture of samba and jazz known as bossa nova. He enjoys using turntables and controllers to create new sounds to help break through cultural barriers and connect with audiences wherever he goes.
Richard blends a fundamental enthusiasm for the market, high technology and applied science with an insatiable appetite for learning, and an all-in mentality regarding experiential education and international studies and programs.
He invites you to connect with @CoverBrazil on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Posterous and Linked-In, or meet for a cafezinho.
