    Epsolòn Tequila drops Day of the Dead streetwear collection designed by Saner

    The ‘Calavera collection,’ designed by a multimedia Mexican artist, celebrates rich tradition in a modern, fashion-forward context.

    Epsolòn Tequila has today unveiled a limited-edition streetwear collection championing Mexican culture in honor of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

    The ‘Calavera collection’ was designed by Saner, a renowned Mexican illustrator, graphic designer and street artist, and reflects his signature style that blends Mayan motifs with graffiti art. It was also inspired by Epsolòn’s award-winning portfolio comprising four tequilas.

    According to tradition, the “calavera” is a celebration of the human skull, often adorned with marigolds, and created from sugar during the Mexican holiday that honors ancestors on November 1. “Dias de los Muertos is a holiday with such rich tradition, and I really wanted the artwork for this collection to bring a piece of Mexico to the US,” Saner said in a statement. “The four designs mix together prehispanic art techniques and feature traditional Mexican symbolism for a streetwear collection that celebrates culture with a modern edge.”

To enter for a chance to win, participants ages 21 and over must submit a “calavera literaria” – a written tribute that has its roots in 19th century Mexico – in the comments today.

We look forward to bringing the traditions of Mexico to the US in a new way this fall.”
