This year we have seen a transformation of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Mexico due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the April edition was completely digital through the official YouTube channel, this season MBFWMx had a hybrid format to present the Spring-Summer 2021 collections.
With some presential shows and fashion films, Mexican designers and brands showed some of the trends for the next season, through a tour in Mexico through Mexico that began in the State of Mexico, continued in San Miguel de Allende, passed through Guadalajara and ended in CDMX.
Here are some of my favorite collections!
Julia and Renata
“Voices that weave” was the name of this collection, presented at the Cerámica Suro factory in Guadalajara. With a color palette that ranges from orange to gray and black, volumes could not be missing in the designs of this duo.
Inspired by the black and white photography of Helmut Newton, this designer presented his SS21 collection at Drea in Guadalajara, with the classic cuts of his style such as shoulder pads and skirts with neckline, full of glamor and drama, without leaving aside the femininity.
The Rotonda de los Jalicienses Ilustres in Guadalajara was the scene of the presentation of Benito Santos, who on this occasion presented a ready-to-wear collection, inspired by the agave. Denim, embroidered fabrics, bags and oversized proportions were the keys to this collection.
This collection presented at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City, has a tropical trend, as a form of escapism from current reality. With a feminine silhouette, light fabrics and color blocking with mostly green tones, these pieces are inspired by beachwear.
Amora SS21 was the name of this collection, a mixture of western style and butterfly details, which symbolize the metamorphosis and openness to change that we must face in today’s reality. White, yellow and lilac tones, feminine silhouettes and ruffles were part of the designs.
With a fashion film made in Durango, this stylish brand from northern Mexico presented its Forastera collection, inspired by the old west, but with a contemporary and very feminine touch.
With Rosetta as the stage for the catwalk, this collection maintains the simple and minimalist aesthetic of this designer under a new facet, since the designs were made with mostly linen, with a color palette that ranges from white to beige, as well as some green shades.
