The extraordinary bioseries produced by Netflix that narrates the life and career of Luis Miguel has reached new markets. His popularity is such that entrepreneurs are cashing in on the show’s success in the world of fashion, creating lines of t-shirts and merchandise, such as cups or pins, with the figure of the singer as well as some of the characters in the series, including his Dad, Luis Rey.
The 13-episode show, an authorized biography of the Mexican superstar Luis Miguel is an unflinching tell-all that serves up a series of bombshells from the tangled past of the fiercely private singer known as “El Sol de México.”
With its high levels of audience which have boomed in reproductions through platforms like Spotify, Luis Miguel fans all over Mexico are getting in on this new clothing craze.
Ever since the launch of the first episode of the Luis Miguel series on Netflix, designer Roxana Ramos noticed the huge interest from Mexicans in the series, so she began to make some illustrations to print on T-shirts. Her first print run completely sold out, which bore the phrase of the singer’s father, “I hate you Luisito Rey.”
From the city of Tijuana, an outlet named Green Love created its own designs alluding to the “Sun of Mexico”, Luis Miguel. The ingenuity of their products not only reflect the singer in shirts, but can also be found on cups and pins for clothes, which have the image of the singer and his famous phrase “It will be that you does not love me”.
Their products already enjoyed popularity before the series with the inhabitants of Tijuana following the fandom for artists like Juan Gabriel and Selena, who also have their own t-shirts.
