What we know about TEAMO probably doesn't amount to much more than what most New York fashion people know about this brand based in Mexico City. We know that the designers often crop up in street-style/party photography websites, that the TEAMO aesthetic has traces of religious and/or gothic influences, and that, alongside brands like Marvin y Quetzal and Temores, they somewhat embody the fashion scene in Mexico City. This season we thought they broke some of their own boundaries with an array of sophisticated frocks. The colors were vibrant and the embroidery created suggestive smiley faces--but none of this compromised the seriousness of the collection. Something tells us TEAMO won't be known 'just a little bit' for much longer...in the end, this was one of our favorite contemporary collections from the Spring 2009 season.
