Francisco Cancino Lara is the Creative Director of the Mexican brand: YAKAMPOT. He has a degree in Fashion Design and Advertising. Following a passion he had since he was a child. Today he has become one of the most talented designers from Mexico and an ambassador of our country in the fashion world. In 2014 the brand YAKAMPOT was the winner of Vogue’s “Who´s on next” contest and that same year he received the award of the Best Creative Direction given by the Fashion Group. Their fast growth and incredible success allowed them to open their first boutique in one of the most luxurious streets in Mexico City: Polanco. This year they will open selling points at well-known department stores such as Saks Mexico, Luisa Via Roma and Liverpool.
Francisco loves to run, is a food lover and absolutely loves poetry. He celebrates the fabulous style of her close friend Maggie Galaton and admires hand made pieces. The oldest piece inside his closet is a t-shirt of the Barcelona 1992 Olympic games and his favorite collection, from this season, are the pieces from Trista, for men.
For the fashion designer having a healthy lifestyle is important, that’s why running is part of his everyday routine and the last song he listened to in his iPod was “Chet Faker” by Gold. His first drink of the day was a lemon shot with water and ginger infusion. The proposals of the Six Antwerp, the fashion of 90’s and the mexican textile culture are movements, proposals and concepts from where he frequently finds inspiration for his work.
The Fancy Archive admires Francisco’s talent and work. Stay tuned, because he shared with us that he is working in a collaboration he is sure we will fall in love with.
