Inspiration

Hugo Salinas

As you may or may not have read on our about us page, De Mafé is all about being a platform for artists and creatives to showcase their work on ethically and sustainably made garments. So for our first ever collection/launch we are happy to introduce our inspiration Hugo Salinas, a Mexican painter/architect, whose style, I would say, reflects his understanding of life.

Átame (inspiration for Blue Print)

La Lujuria (inspiration for Red Print)

For starters that life can be INTENSE, and haven't we all experienced that especially this year? Am i right? But from that intensity emerges his paintings with a burning color palette, that we thought was important to show in the Spring/Summer Swim 2021 collection. The other thing his style reflects is that life is a constant mock, NEVER TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY, which we think is exactly what wearing a bikini is all about, having fun, being you, and not taking yourself too seriouslyyy! Since there's already so many things we actually need to take seriously. But anyways, why keep talking when the work speaks for itself…
