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.
