Today I’m blown away by Pineda Covalin, a Mexico-based fashion house, whom I discovered today through a client. I am amazed at all the surface pattern inspiration and the uniqueness of the prints. These are at once colorful, expressive and chic. The collection expands from home interiors to accessories to clothing. A feast for the eyes! Since I’m pretty much in LUST with Latin cultural influence, be it food, tequila, or the happy bright colors that Mexico is fond of, the Pineda Covalin brand completely calls to me.
“The company’s main purpose is to expand the richness of Mexican culture and traditions all over the world through fashionable designs on silk ties, scarves, hadbags, cushions, and other fine products. Each unique design is inspired by Mexican cultural and historical themes such as: Prehispanic culture, Mexican traditions, Mexican mysticism, and Mexican painters (Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera).

And this Barbie I found randomly on the innerwebs:
Check out the site – the fashion shows make me drool a lil bit. Especially the Spring/Summer 2010 one.
I’m excited to be working with this inspiration and will be posting the project I’m working on soon!
