Acapulco Chair Earrings

The Acapulco Chair is a design icon, celebrated for its simplicity and timeless design, which you can now find all over the world. It represents a time when the jet-setters would holiday in Acapulco. From the 1950s and 60s the city’s look and feel became the backdrop for beach-chic and that glamour is what I wanted to capture with this collection.
Originally I thought about working with the PVC cord, typically used to make Acapulco Chairs but in terms of sustainability it didn’t feel right to use plastic. The decision to use an alternative material lead to a fascinating collaboration with Ninot Olvera who produces naturally dyed silks and cottons. The hues produced with the natural dyes give the designs effortless elegance and authenticity.
Once we had the prototypes designed we began to produce the collection with Misión Planeta, which, among other socially engaged activities, provides work to recently rehabilitated women in Mexico City.
