Welcome to a Mexico of old… Aztecs, conquistadors, ponchos, the lot. I’ve been swamped with, you know, school and exams and other dull things that so often preoccupy the lives of teenagers worldwide, but when I saw JPG, I just had to do a post. The collection is just so much fun, in such a different vein from, well, everyone else. And that stands out. (And provides a much-needed break from the tedium of the daily high-school grind – a jump into another world, as it were, and a much more interesting one at that).

Starting with this ridiculously vibrant palm tree look, sported by the ever-striking Georgina Stojilkovic:

Maria Kashleva. HAT! The hats are fantastic, costume-y, but not quite – because they actually do hail back to a time gone by. Interesting concept…

Georgina again – those colors, so rich!

The hat, again – like an entire bird has been festooned onto her head!

Olga Sherer. Not-quite-electric-blue, Aztec-sun-shaped hat that matches the shoulders. Mmm. Deliciously fun!

Sessilee Lopez. Colors, layers, cuts, hair, and – of course – a hat! Although really, “hat” is an understatement – these are more like headpiece art.

The sheer amount of detail and the work that had to go into each and every one of these looks is simply mindblowing.

*My theory on the Aztec calendar? Whoever was chipping away at that massive slab of rock that was their calendar finally got fed up. Can’t you see it? Some poor guys with their chisels in front of a massive wall for weeks and months and years until one of them finally gets fed up enough to point out, “Hey, we’ve got this damn thing done up till about 4000** years from now. I think the next generation can handle it.” But the next generation decided they didn’t want to – leave it for the next generation, right? And it just never got done. So there.

**Not sure of this date…
