FASH­ION STATE­MENT

Elle (Canada) - - Elle Letters -

The huipil fea­tured in Liz Gu­ber’s ar­ti­cle about Gu­atemala [“In Living Colour,” ELLE Es­cape, Jan­uary 2015] caught my at­ten­tion. I, too, trav­elled to that beau­ti­ful coun­try and was en­tranced by the hand­wo­ven fab­rics. At first, to my north­ern eyes, the var­ied pat­terns seemed to clash, but af­ter a while my aes­thetic sense caught on and I was hooked. Wear­ing a huipil is a good way to start con­ver­sa­tions about Gu­atemala’s beauty, cul­ture and dif­fi­cult his­tory, for which I have re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion.
