Huichol Indian Guitar

The Hermes Music Foundation has given this rare spiritual gift to Bellas Artes Alliance to raise funds for producing events that promote, preserve and advance Latino music, art and culture. “Hermes has provided very few of these guitars. They have been prepared well in advance and only for very special people and artists such as Carlos Santana, Ricky Martin, and Deepak Chopra, among others.”

The guitar is being raffled by Latinitas on behalf of Bellas Artes Alliance. The drawing will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2011, at the Pan Americana Festival  Held at Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, 600 River Street, Austin, TX 78701. For more information, or to purchase a ticket, please leave a message at 512-282-9112 or contact lramirez@bellasartesalliance.com.

“Mexibeads”

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.
