Rarely has fashion spoken about the political situation as it does now, particularly after President Donald Trump came to power.
This could be seen on the catwalks of the recent New York Fashion Week. Prabal Gurung showed models wearing T-shirts with phrases like “Yes, We Should All Be Feminists” and “The Future Is Female”, while Christian Siriano designed a T-shirt with the slogan People are People, the proceeds of which are donated entirely to the civil rights organization ACLU.
But this political position is not only found on the catwalks …
Layón explained on his Instagram account what he is looking for with this project.
“MEXICO IS THE SHIT is a tribute to all those Mexicans around the world who are changing the global culture with their beautiful hearts and brilliant minds; it is a way of showing that we are many and we are united; that we are raising our standards, reminding the world that our voice matters,”he explained. “It is a community, a support system, and a movement that inspires love, respect, and trust. And you don't have to be Mexican to be part of it, you just have to love Mexico as we love it. Spread the word!”He added.
And what if it spread! Because the jacket was sold out within minutes of going on sale on the website mercadorama.com.mx. If you are interested in buying it, do not worry since they will return to take out merchandise this February 25.
Do not miss it!
