”Mictlan” AW 2013 Fashion Collection by Lea Adelsten

What happens to us when we die? That is a question which is the main point for many religions and ancient myths. This collection takes inspiration from the underworld of the ancient Aztecs, Mictlán, which was the final destination of the Aztecs, who died of natural causes and not as warriors. This kingdom was ruled with an iron fist by the hideous and ruthless god of death, Mictlantecuthli, which took the shape of a giant skeleton in colourful clothes. To ease his anger, the Aztecs honoured the god by raising several temples and pyramids, from where they worshiped him and performed human sacrifices. The pyramids and temples of death are expressed through sculptural shapes and patterns in the clothing, while the skeletal contours appears as detailing. The colourful costumes of Mictlantecuthli have also been an inspiration to the choice of colours in the collection. Photography: Dennis Møller – http://www.dennismoller.dk.
