Crossing contradictory elements may not be everyone’s piece of cake but Aztec Barba’s Luxewear collection proves otherwise through a middle finger to conformity and whispering a sweet melody of rebellion to the would-be revolutionary. Who ever said class and danger can’t mix obviously hasn’t met the Aztec woman.
Aztec Barba is killing us with these oxymorons! Bondage lines met earthy tones and mix in with floral, abstract, and oriental prints to create a tamed-fierceness with diaphanous dresses. Eccentric and overt, Aztec’s designs add a mysterious and edgy gust of daring to an otherwise sweet and frothy look, giving new meaning to the phrase, “If looks could kill.” She may not be a warrior woman standing on top of a pyramid or rolling around in the Amazon. Imagine her instead stalking her prey in the concrete jungle.—LOSTGIRL
