Green river, Veracruz blue, red dahlia and yellow pollen, are the tones that – inspired by the folklore of Tlacotalpan, Veracruz – give accents of color to the Goyri proposal to contrast with more winter hues.
“I am talking about the Veracruz woman, but above all, the Mexican woman. How today is so present, so alive, with a super powerful voice. Every day shows us strength and I think that Mexican fashion is a way for them to express themselves more “explains Kris Goyri while supervising the last details of previous to the show.
Through t-shirts with labels that enhance the qualities of Mexican women, Kris Goyri joins the trend of t-shirts with messages of strength and feminism, as have companies such as Christian Dior or Prabal Gurung.
This collection is an exaltation of the DNA of the brand, in it are recovered its elements and insignia silhouettes: flights, petals, organic and fluid forms, ethereal silhouettes. “It’s like a recount of Kris Goyri, of the pieces that have worked very well along the way, I wanted to make a collection that represents what the signature is,” he says.
The jewelry was in charge of Sophie Simone Designs, who created pieces inspired by the universe of the mushrooms. Creations that harmonized perfectly with the organic nature of Goyri’s designs.
