CIPRIANAMÍA

Designed by Nelissa Carrillo, the brand takes notes from her Mexican heritage and explores themes of ancestral traditions, consciousness in self-representation, and the Mexican-American experience as a first-generation daughter. Punk, through it’s questioning of tradition and luxury through its approach to craftsmanship, CIPRIANAMÍA uses handcrafted patchwork meant to breathe new life into forgotten pieces and elevated tailoring that juxtaposes the inherited romance of Mexican Culture - Creating a duality In The Feminine And Mascul.
