I’ve become obsessed with the Mayle Spring/Summer 2008 collection which was inspired the Manat exhibition at the MOMA and has a slight Mexican funeral theme. In creating the collection designer, Jane Mayle,

 “imagined a series of Mexican widows, one more beautiful in mourning than the next, who might gather at the graveside of such a man, stand next to each other and alongside generals, bandits and a cross-section of every other sort of Mexican citizen. Not only could my concoction allow for the inappropriate intermingling of señorita with sergeant, but a normally solemn event could be invaded by a general feeling of festivity and the colours of a piñata could run riot.”{via mayleonline.com}

The embroidery, cut-outs, and floral prints have me swooning.  I am dying to get my hands on the charcoal Florinda jersey dress with its flamingo hued floral embroidery!!

Even the inspiring collage that appears on the Mayle has me in love! Wherever I go it seems Mayle is threatening to make a dent in my spring wardrobe budget! My favorite looks from the Spring 2008 Mayle collection are pictured below!
