Pink Magnolia x Disney, Mexico City

14/05/2013, Disney, Fashion and Style, Mexico City

Pink Magnolia, a youthful brand targeted to teenage girls in Mexico founded by Paola and Pamela Wong, recently invited me to Mexico City as one of their guests. Their runway show, styled by New York stylist Keegan Singh, featured their collaboration with Disney. Many of the runway pieces featured prints incorporated with the iconic image of Minnie Mouse. Overall, it was a fun, flirty and cute collection.

The very entrepreneurial Wong sisters were incredibly kind and generous. They showed Queenie and I an amazing time in their city. Being with them made me miss my own sisters back in the Philippines.

Bienvenido a la Ciudad de México!

22/04/2013, Current Affairs, Gucci, Mexico City, Phillip Lim, Saint Laurent Paris

Hola mamacita! Hola papi chulo! Despite all my world travels, I had never been to Mexico. It seemed appropriate that Mexico City be my introduction. I’ve heard so many things about this megalopolis — glorious food, terrible traffic, and plenty of pollution, but to be honest, as I stepped off the plane, I had absolutely no idea what to expect.

I had a long list of places to visit in the city, but at the top was the Centro Historico, or the historical center of Mexico City. At its heart was the Zocalo, a plaza lined with immense buildings with ancient facades stained by the pollution and hundreds of years of rich history. Standing at the center of it all, listening to the bells of the cathedral, I felt as though I could have easily been in some other old-world European city.

Queenie and I left our hotel, the Condesa DF in Condesa, at the crack of dawn to beat the crowds and traffic. We spent the entire morning wandering around and paid our dues at some of the old, very old fixtures, such as the Palacio Nacional, Cathedral Metropolitana, Palacio de Bellas Artes, Museo Nacional de Arte and Palacio de Correos. We got back to the hotel just in time to make the last call for breakfast. We couldn’t have had a more productive morning!

On me: Saint Laurent Paris polka-dot button-down shirt (click HERE to buy), 3.1 Phillip Lim shorts (click HERE to buy), patent leather brogues by Gucci (click HERE to buy). On Queenie: Theory shirt, Prada backpack, All Saints jeans.

Oh Mexico. It’s never too warm to sport a little bit of fur. I must say I can’t live without my lovely purple fur camera strap from my collaboration with Adrienne Landau. This is the the original prototype version in mink fur and we’re producing them in rabbit, raccoon and fox versions.
