Cardón is a project that opened doors this year, this initiative was given to complete a trilogy of stores, along with Columpio and Mooni. The concepts of the three stores are very contrasting, which gave rise to this more sober clothing space. The three conceptual stores were developed by Andrea Monroy and Teodoro Moya .
With this new proposal, the contemporary garments with monochrome tones, some color blocks and textures. But what dominates in general are fabrics of organic origin, such as linen and cotton.
What is sought with Cardón is to highlight the Latin American quality design of countries like Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Mexico. Although in the future they are not closed to designers from other countries, as long as they go with the aesthetic proposal that unites all brands.
The philosophy that guides them is to celebrate design at its best. They work with people who take care of the details and carry out a very rigorous process in the production of the pieces. Having clothing for both women and men, they expect anyone to come to this initiative regardless of their age.
The office that was in charge of the architectural conceptualization and of interior design was GRADo Estudio by Giovanna and Adriana Rodríguez, specialized in independent design stores. Those who were also in charge of intervening the other two stores that encompass the conceptual trilogy.
The curatorship for the store was done with an investigation of the brands, search for other in bazaars and some others that came to join the project. Currently with clothing brands such as Grieve, Simple, 1/8 Takamura, Subtropicalia, Core, Paulo Succar, Debora Castillo and Subvanilla. While in the jewelry section is Micha González, Avocet, Metric, Opulento, Sonia Nuzzo and Jacobo Toleto. To learn more about this project, check out her Instagram account @ cardon_mx.
