Global attraction

For SS16 Sergio Davila drew on a mixture of westernised vibes and Southern American cultural codes – particularly ones from the past, specifically, the type found in the designer’s home of Peru.

Palm trees and florals were printed across full-bodied, preppy silhouettes. All over in some; just as motifs on others. Tailored shorts and single- and double-breasted jackets helped create a collegiate character. All made with Peruvian cottons.

The focus here was on versatility. Not just across various permutations of male, but geographical location, too. As Davila put it, “from the Ivy League to the Inca Trail, from office to evening” – garments for an international crowd.
