A New L-Atitude
Global shopping destination L-Atitude has taken its customers from Bali to Bogota, from Milan to Mumbai. The site’s worldly editors pull unique items from the coolest markets and most talented local craftsmen—the kind of statement pieces you’d pick up if you were there (no cheesy trinkets)—and deliver them on the site, haggle-free.
Last night, the online retailer celebrated its latest destination: bringing the best of Mexico City to its customers, no passport required.
Guests couldn’t keep their hands off of one of the real standouts: a series of ikat print Rebozo scarves (above) from Francesca Bonato’s collection at Hacienda Montaecristo: they’re handmade in a labor-intensive process of knotting, dying, and pedal-loom weaving, and can take up to two months to create.
Though not easily overshadowed were the beautiful jewelry from Dezso by Sara Beltran collections (above, left), and pieces from emerging designers Maurizio Fernandez (above, right) and Gabriela Artigas.

And the only thing better than taking one of these pieces home is knowing that ten percent of all proceeds from the collection go to benefit Project Paz, a charity which works to promote peace in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
