Mexico is famous for many things — its ancient ruins, delicious food, fabulous beaches, amazing sights. But Mexico is also rapidly becoming a hotspot for the trendiest of fashions. Look out New York, London, Paris and Milan — because these three Mexican men’s fashion designers will soon be taking your runways by storm.
1. Mondo Guerra
Mondo Guerra’s goal is to show everyone that fashion is all about breaking rules. He was famously the runner-up in the eighth season of Project Runway, the winner of the first All-Stars season and was a mentor on the Project Runway spinoff Under the Gunn. Now he owns his own successful brand, and he’s recently branched out to design for men.
2. Josué Rodas
Rodas’ androgynous style and flamboyant materials are poised to, well, conquer the world. His brand’s still a bit new, but with a start like this, his label will soon be everywhere. You can already see his work in the hipster fashion markets of Mexico City, not to mention the trendiest gay clubs and bars. Order his clothes online and you, too, can be a trendsetter in your own town. If you don’t mind shiny fabrics and head-turning shapes, Rodas Brand is for you.
Since 1996, Pineda Covalín has proven to be one of the most successful luxury houses in Mexico. Its sophisticated pieces have been seen on red carpets and in magazines around the world. Pineda Covalín’s use of silk to celebrate Mexican folklore and culture is amazing. Placing Aztec designs on ties and monarch butterflies on swimsuits, everything about these designs just screams Mexican pride.
If you’re sick of looking like everyone else at the bar, get your inspiration from Mexico. With fresh, colorful designs on high-quality clothing, Mexican designers can’t be beat. You’ll be sure to get noticed in these awesome threads.
