The Luxury Stores at Amazon—its impeccably curated, ultra-luxe area with a rotating edit of established and emerging designers—surprised us with a sale earlier this week.

The L.A. designer who remade the cobija into luxury fashion

This story is part of L.A. — We. See. You!, the second issue of Image, which explores various ways of seeing the city for what it is. See the full package here.

Designer Brenda Equihua’s references growing up in a working-class Mexican household in Santa Barbara exuded an over-the-top flashiness: Doilies under the VCR. Organza ruffle curtains. Cloth toilet-seat covers with matching rugs. Fake flowers in those glass cases you’d get at the swap meet. Her mom, whose aesthetic was similar to the glamorous Mexican movie star María Félix. And something else: San Marcos cobijas.
