Sergio Davila Fall 2013: Few standouts in patchy collection

Peruvian designer Sergio Davila looked to the disparate denizens of Lima for his Fall 2013 collection’s inspiration, from artist Alvaro Feliu to punks (including the erroneously-named Peruvian hairless dog that could perhaps be counted as a punk, considering its mohawk-like tuft of hair).

The result, however, was patchy at times.  While there were a few standout looks for women, including a taupe one-shouldered wool dress with asymmetrical hem paired with black leggings, and a black wool army jacket worn with a long black gauze blouse and tights, the men’s casual looks were sometimes forgettable.

However, when Davila focused on refinement, he executed it well.  One notable piece for men was a handsome brown lambskin peacoat worn over a white button-down shirt and dark camel wool pants, and another was a black cashmere wool suit jacket with matte silver sequined lapels that closed the show.
