MESOAMERICA EDITION - Spring/Summer 2012
For their Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Pvblic chose the region and people of early Mesoamerica – studying the ancient Mayans, Inca, Aztec and Olmecs. Silhouettes touch upon traditional Huipil tops and Breechcloths. Prints are heavily inspired by Gods and Glyphs found in the 4 codices – the only books left undestroyed when the Spaniards conquered the region.
Other details include gold glass beads and Leather “ weapon pouches” that contain tumbled Obsidian, a naturally formed volcanic rock that Mayans used to make swords.
