MEXI. Clothing co-founder Natalia Albin reflects on Oscar-winning film ROMA (2018) and what it means for Mexicans.————— It’s quiet inside. Only the sound of running water is heard, complemented with imagery of soap and bubbles—making sure everything is perfect and pristine. Outside, there’s noise everywhere: an evocative memory of one of Mexico City’s central neighbourhoods. It’s everyday life and social unrest in the form of an intimate portrait of an individual life, one that most Mexicans feel they’ve lived in one way or another.
Mexico City is one of the biggest in the world. It’s almost overwhelming how much there is to see and do, and sticking to purely touristic sights feels like a loss. So your co-founders have decided to compile a list of spots and dividing it by day to make it a little (or a lot) easier for you and maybe convince you to actually go to Mexico City!

Day of the Dead is perhaps Mexico's most famous celebration. So what is it and how is it celebrated? Day of the Dead, or “Día de Muertos” in Spanish, is a festival to commemorate the dead and a public holiday in Mexico. Day of the Dead runs from October 31st to All Souls Day, on November 2nd. Rituals honouring the dead date back several thousand years, all the way to the Aztecs. However, the current traditions mostly took shape during the 20th century.
