Australia, Bienvenido a Mexico!

Frida-vogue-1937-TEST

Test shot of Frida Khalo for VOGUE in 1937.

The coming of spring brings with it a sweetness and vibrancy like no other: there is something about it which brings out the best in us. Everything from the gentle breeze, blooming flowers and delicious fruits in season call to mind the colours and evolution of style which the fashion world mirrors in perfect harmony. The recent Fashion Weeks have seen a nod to Mexico in droves among the major brands, bringing a youthful, bold and sassy lift to the Autumn/Winter collections. Beaded jackets, mismatching patterns and tasseled ponchos all embodied the exotic culture, reminding us of its history, artistry and gastronomy.

Another solid marker in what reminds us of Mexico is the tender yet fierce legend, Frida Khalo. Known in her time as a subject of mockery for going beyond the bounds of fashion dictated to her (often wearing overbearing dresses and headpieces reserved for religious ceremonies), her rebellious sense of style is now the pioneer of inspiration for this season. We in Australia ought to follow Khalo in adopting a purposeful approach to our wardrobe – looking to what inspires and excites us for direction. This Spring/Summer, bright masalas, deep grey-blues and emeralds are set to be among the top colour choices for reflecting this beautiful season.

Below are my top picks which speak to the fashionista in all of us – all photos from Harper’s Bazaar
