Mexico City-based Te Amo designers Rafa Cuevas and Roberto S├ínchez’s work has gained a New York following that includes Chloe Sevigny, The Misshapes and M.I.A. We were lucky enough to escape cold New York for a quick word and shoot.

Hatnim Lee: If your clothing were an animal, what would it be?
Te Amo: Hmm…a cat.

Hatnim: Who was the first person who made you want to design clothes?
Rafa: My friend Pablo.
Roberto: My ex-girlfriend Adriana.

Hatnim: Te amo means “I love you” in Spanish. If you were to describe love in one word, what word would that be?
Rafa: GOD.
Roberto: Mom.

    I love the lead photo. And the Q&A. It seems sometimes communicating in a second language can make for a clearer conversation, no? Or at least a more poetic and romantic one.
