A Dream Wardrobe—and Itinerary—for a Weekend in Mexico City

Everything Sherri McMullen ate, saw, and—most importantly—wore.

I’m not much for the concept of a capsule wardrobe, but I find traveling to be a useful exercise in creating a condensed closet du jour. Logistical constraints call for wardrobe workhorses, but no need for neutrals here—unless you want them, of course. When Sherri McMullen, founder of the eponymous Oakland, California specialty store McMullen, headed to Mexico City last month, she invoked the notions of the capsule—items you can mix, match, and, most importantly, repeat—without giving into its potential for boredom. Not even a pair of jeans or plain T-shirt in sight! Instead, she opted for vibrant pieces from her favorite designers: Dries Van Noten, Rosie Assoulin, Zankov, and Ulla Johnson. Ahead, she documents everything she saw, ate, and wore for a week of hours-long lunches, poolside meetings, and art exhibitions in CDMX.
