Mexican Designer Sabrina Olivera's Pants Collection to Support Victims of Domestic Violence

Featuring eye-catching prints on flattering silhouettes.

Brooklyn-based Mexican designer Sabrina Olivera has unveiled her latest collection dubbed “Soldaderas.” As a tribute to the armed women of the Mexican Revolution, the range features three pants that explore “the tension between the strength that the Soldaderas exhibited and the delicacy that is associated with women,” according to a press release. Olivera said:

“I had very few resources available, so I had to start looking at fabrics that were not exactly fabrics for clothing but fabrics that were used to cover things up like tablecloths and curtains. So then it hit me, this same exercise that I was doing had a lot to do with domesticity. I started thinking about women in Mexico and how some of them dedicate most of their lives to housekeeping.

It’s difficult to look back and think about the start of Soldaderas because the project did not almost develop, it was a compilation of ongoing ideas, conversations and pieces of political news. All of this resulted in a collection.”

Garments in the line are made out of delicate fabrics and soft cashmere, as well as rigidly constructed leather and woven material for added contrast. Through the use of bold prints and vibrant colors, the pants were created to provide financial support to women who are daily victims of the ongoing gender violence epidemic in Mexico. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to Red Nacional de Refugios A.C., an organization based in Mexico that supports shelters helping domestic violence victims.

Take a look at the offerings in the lookbook above. Styles from the “Soldaderas” collection are priced at $250 USD each, which you can now pre-order online.
