Hey Mami

A chola is a female version of a cholo…

The tough guy image of dickies, vests and oversized shirts that some are familiar with as strictly for the latino fellas, is just as badass when taken on by the latina ladies!! It is the eyebrows, eyeliner, lipliner and hair that I love the most and of course the way the stereotypically male clothing is taken on by the gals with style.

‘Coco Chola’ by Mason Poole, styled by Djuna Bel for i-D magazine.

Naomi does it…

Kate does it…

Coco does it…

The wonderful Gwen has been at it for years…

Images taken from Mi Vida Loca (1993), written and directed by Allison Anders. A tale of a girl gang and the friendships and turmoil within it. A go-to for style and if you want to talk the talk.
