Frida’s Wardrobe Experience – Andaz Mayakoba

Frida Khalo is an icon of unique personal style and Mexico – she IS Andaz!!

As cultural insiders for Andaz Mayakoba, del Sol photography is curating photo experiences for visitors to the resort. Since the Andaz philosophy is all about expressing your own personal style we had to include an experience paying tribute to the artist Frida Khalo.

Frida’s wardrobe is a space where Andaz Mayakoba guests can experiment with Mexican inspired clothes and adapt them to their unique style. The final product of the “Frida’s Wardrobe” experience will be documentary and fine art images of Andaz Mayakoba guests expressing their own Mexican fusion style!

Part of the power of Khalo’s appearance was her subversive use of traditional clothes. She was wearing Mexican traditional clothing when and where no one else was! When she was walking around in San Francisco in the ’30s, kids used to ask her, “Hey, where’s the circus?” She was also mixing European and Mexican clothing. We’re exited to see how Andaz Mayakoba guests integrate the Mexican elements into their own personal style!

Frida’s Wardrobe is a playful tribute to Frida Khalo. It’s dressing-up fun, but it also gives Andaz Guests a window into Frida’s world. Khalo used her personal style as a way to express her creative heart and unlimited imagination, even when her body limited her.

For example, the corset in an intrinsic part of Frida Khalo’s style. Khalo had to wear medical corsets but she customized them. She painting and decorating them, using them to express her vision and style. We are delighted to be working with Mexican designer Claudia Bo. Claudia designs contemporary corsets embellished with traditional Mexican embroidery and headpieces inspired by the Tehuana style headpieces worn by Khalo.

We were delighted to offer the Frida’s wardrobe experience to Diana Villalobos Barrera and her boyfriend Hugo. It was amazing to see Diana in Frida’s Wardrobe as she’s a trailblazing Mexican female artist in her own right. Diana left Mexico to study and live in Shangai, China. She won the 2016 International Designer of the Year Award and was invited to show at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. That’s a HUGE accomplishment in the fashion world.

Diana blended Frida’s Wardrobe with her personal style. Finishing touches came from hair and make up magic from Sara and Ester Tamargo. We took Diana and Hugo on a tour around Andaz Mayakoba, exploring the resort’s own Mexican fusion style.

Frida’s Wardrobe is more than a “portrait session”. It’s an opportunity to explore the Mexican fusion style of Andaz Mayakoba.

We took Diana and Hugo to Olla Taco Restaurant where chef Jorge showed them how he prepares unique cervice inspired by traditional Yucateca dishes. We tried Axiote (a red sweet and sour sauce made from seeds) and Relleno Negro (a dark, very spicy sauce), both typical dishes from the Yucatan. The Olla Taco restaurant has incredible sunset light and gave us the chance to make spectacular golden flare-y portraits of Diana and Hugo.

The hours around sunset are magical, after the golden light comes the blue. All the illumination of the architecture beginning to have a presence. Light is soft and color changes to a moody, cozy ambience.

We were drawn to the Cocina Milagro restaurant, not only does it look amazing for pictures but it has amazing cocktails! Who said a portrait session had to be all hard work and no fun ;) The mixologist showed us his cocktail recipes that use local, organic ingredients and we took advantage of the gorgeous setting for more pictures.

We’re looking forward to meet our next travellers to share good times and deliver amazing images!
