London-based Catherine Martin of Our Exquisite Corpse traveled to Mexico and discovered the beautiful beadwork of the Huichol. She worked with them to create these stunning beaded clay skulls at the time of ‘dia de los muertos’, the day of the dead.
Christian Louboutin made this Huichol inspirated pumps for spring/summer 2012. Mexibeads will retail at £1,732 at Louboutin World; a relatively high price point even for the brand that undoubtedly reflects the intricate beading that gives the shoe its Mexican character. The beads positively shimmer, and are embedded on a luxe satin canvas.
