BIG BANG AT TIERRA SANTA HEALING HOUSE | FAENA
Paula Selby Avellaneda, founder and curator of Big Bang, recently added 11.11 / eleven eleven’s menswear to the shop’s exclusive fashion mix.
“There’s something very universal and ancient about this brand, but it’s also contemporary and relaxed,” she explains.
“They use beautiful materials, beautiful colors and have a really beautiful heritage of protecting the craftsmanship of the communities that sow and die their clothes.” For more than a decade, 11.11 / eleven eleven has partnered with rurally located artisans in India who work with ancestral techniques such as hand spinning, hand-loom weaving, handpainting, dyeing, and quilting. Their breathable cotton garments are handmade from indigenous cotton and dyed using native ingredients like tamarind, palm sugar, pomegranate skin, indigo and myrobalan flower petals. “I love their styling and fit,” says Selby. “Their clothes hit every note.”
Linen fabrics and a variety of colors are at the heart of Argentine brand, Felix. “Their linen collection is very vibrant and beachy,” Selby explains. “It has a summer spirit that’s classic but fun.” Guests can shop lightweight caftans and well-designed swim trunks that work seamlessly as beach attire and daywear.
Big Bang also stocks Le Mec (which translates from French as “the guy”), a high-end sportswear brand for men. “The brand sells online, but they have a pop-up with us,” says Selby. “We carry their very cool workout clothes and sports equipment from training gear to boxing gloves.”
