Fall 2020 - Panteón Viejo de Xoxocotlán
The MEMENTO MORI (Fall 2020) Collection is inspired by iconic cemeteries 'round the world.
Located a short distance from Oaxaca in the south of Mexico, Santa Cruz Xoxocotlán is home to one of the largest celebrations of Día de Muertos in Mexico. Prior to Spanish colonization this celebration traditionally took place in early Summer, but is today celebrated between October 31 and November 2. During the three-day celebration, families traditionally will clean and decorate graves of departed loved ones; private altars (sometimes quite elaborate ones) are built to include the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, along with photos, memorabilia, candles, incense, and artwork. Ofrendas - including candy, food, flowers, notes, and blankets - are typically left outside homes as a welcoming gesture for the visiting deceased.
