Fear and Loathing in Mexico

Three days in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. An ATV of designer pieces. And a guy named Miguel. This is Fear and Loathing in Mexico.

For an editorial feature, SSENSE sent photographer Maxime Ballesteros to San Miguel de Allende, a central Mexican city known for its UNESCO World Heritage architecture, as well as a pink cathedral modeled after a postcard of Gaudí’s Sagrada Família in Barcelona. Along with designer Jen Gilpin and model Masumi Rioja, he spent three days exploring the surrounding area, riding on ATVs with trunks packed full of pieces from Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Marni, Junya Watanabe, and Chloé.
