Move over, Michael Kors!
Mexican clothing brand Cecilia México has come up with an awesome idea: To turn our beloved and ubiquitous jergas into the latest fashion craze.
I’d totallly wear one, so please don’t judge.

Sahara Tees, a company in California I had never heard of, is now peddling the “official” Shalom Amigos Jewish Mexican Hanukkah Shirt, a fine product to kick off your 2021 Hanukkah celebrations.
Happy Hanukkah to all my amigos who celebrate!
The only thing I have not yet figured out is if these things come with the lime and Valentina included or if they’re sold separately?
Move over Michael Kors’ jerga fashion, the next big thing in Mexican-inspired fashion comes courtesy of Carolina Herrera, who is launching her “unique” Mexico-inspired collection.
According to Atlanta-born Wes Gordon, creative director of the Carolina Herrera brand, the 2020 Mexico collection draws its inspiration from the traditional “sarape, embroidered flowers and the cempasúchitl flower to bring to life one of the most vibrant –and visually rich– Carolina Herrera collections.” TRANSLATION: It’s basically another case of ripping off the traditional embroidery and designs of local indigenous peoples.
Please note that the models are NOT inspired on the looks of said indigenous peoples…
Personas que les gusta la moda: ¿Ideas sobre la nueva colección de Carolina Herrera?, ¿re-interpretación o apropiación cultural? Los leo.
Lo que a mí me salta es lo híper blanca de esta campaña. No vi una sola modelo diversa (ni en tono de piel, ni en tipo de cuerpo).

Luego tenemos el vestido de sarape. No es inspiración; sus colores son una copia casi exacta del famoso sarape de Saltillo. Acá un poco sobre su proceso de elaboración por parte de artesanos y lo que significan los colores: https://t.co/jNFQ4HSgsi pic.twitter.com/geQgoUOdYJ

I have no idea what she has in mind, but these things are making me hungry!

Some people just want to see the world burn –and annoy the hell out of this blogger.
Take Italian designer Charlotte Olympia, which is peddling a $1,300 taco purse, a taco-shaped thing “embellished with Swarovski crystals and embroidered silk organza.”
I don’t know you, but $1,300 amounts to about $20,000 Mexican pesos (per today’s exchange rate,) which would be good enough to get you approximately 800 of these.
A no brainer, my friends.
Oh, and don’t get me started on the burrito bag, please.

It’s always good to see marketers learn from their past mistakes. Remember the Brown is the New White t-shirt from Macy’s?
Well, no more of that. Instead of launching ethnically-relevant products to please Latino shoppers, Macy’s seems to have changed course and it’s now using tall, unmistakably non-Hispanic blonds to pitch a … are you ready?… “mariachi-style” suit. According to Macy’s own blog, the new collection doesn’t stop there. It promises tons of other Mexican-themed things, including –what else?– plenty of sombreros.
I don’t know you, but I feel like living la vida loca lived by these nice ladies up here, so don’t judge me if the first thing I do when I go back to New York is rush to 34th Street & Broadway. Who doesn’t want to look that fabulous?

I could not make this stuff up even if I tried.
