N.A.A.F.I. ft Oaxaca
In little over half a decade, NAAFI has solidified itself as one of the names at the forefront of Mexico’s electronic music circles. The club night/crew/label has become almost synonymous with Mexico City’s thriving electronic underground, thanks in no small part to their legendary series of parties, which have showcased eminent talents in dance music both domestically and abroad. They’ve also meticulously crafted an brand aesthetic that extends far beyond the music and parties, and encompasses both their artwork and apparel line. Their latest is a woven market bag made in collaboration with artisans from Oaxaca. Use it for as a beach tote, for your groceries, or whatever works. Grab it here.
Produce Goods' Locos Only Bucket Hat
If you love collabs and limited editions, then Produce Goods is for you. Based in Corpus Christi – known to most as home of Selena Quintanilla– these guys have been cranking out everything from clothing to pins to prints to toys, all with a distinctive Tex-Mex DNA. Our favorite cybercholo El Dusty is part of this collective, and you can see his artwork all over their releases. Cop the Locos Only bucket hat here, and check out all their products here.
If you the heat won’t let live, try the sport top by Ytinifnifinity, the Mexican brand known for experimenting with new kinds of silhouettes, rad prints, and plenty of internet inside jokes. They’ve dropped everything from tees emblazoned with a Nokia phone to one featuring Leonardo Di Caprio weeping data. Props to them for packaging this as a unisex “sporty top” rather than a sports bra, because who said dudes can’t bare their midriffs on sweltering days too? Scoop the sporty top here.
