'Rich Kids of Mexico City' flaunt wealth on Instagram account

These photographs lay bare the wealth at the disposal of those in Mexico lucky enough to have ultra-rich parents. Materialism is celebrated in all its glory with posts showing all the trappings of wealth and privilege such as private jets, super-cars, designer clothes and jewelry.

They have drawn inspiration from the children of Russia's oligarchs and billionaires who set up the “Rich Russian Kids” page on Instagram to show off their jet-set lifestyles.

Called “Rich Kids of Mexico City,” this version has a way to go to catch up on their rivals so far boasting only 66,000 followers compared to the Russian page's one million. The images it features contrast starkly with the realities of life in Mexico where corruption and organized crime fuels intense poverty.

According to the World Bank, 53 percent of the country’s population is poor - living on less than $1.97 per day - with half of all children growing up impoverished. But those who are obscenely wealthy do not let this harsh reality of life for many in Mexico stop them from flaunting their wealth.

One photo shows Sofia Castro, stepdaughter of the Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, walking around New York in a Dolce & Gabbana suit.

Another picture shows seven young men putting their hands together to show off their designer watches, with the caption: "Squad goals."

In one photograph of a large pile of banknotes comes with the words: "This is how we roll!"
