Stuck in London without a rebozo? Salsa-less in Soho? Caught without a calaca? Stop by the Mestizo Mexican Market — next door to Mestizo Restaurant & Tequila Bar on Hampstead Road in Kings Cross — for all your arte, comida, y ropas requirements.
Nicaraguan-born Chicago artist and printmaker Carlos Barberena mixes up traditional calacas and current events. Wall Street, Mickey Mouse, McDonalds, Halliburton, British Petroleum and other icons look better as muertos, don’t you think?
With everybody and her tio dressing up for Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, it’s important to stand out from the crowd with a bold fashion-forward statement. For some stylish chipsters, that means a calavera-themed fez.
Lucky for us, that’s exactly what our ‘chuco suave model, Pablo from the Internets, is wearing! Pablo’s embroidered velvet chapeau is a new Fall style from San Diego’s Fez-o-rama.com. You don’t just wear a fez, pochos. A fez wears you.
