serGio DaVila Dusky and edgy men’s and women’s looks were shown at Sergio Davila’s Fall 2013 collection on February 7th at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. His inspiration came from the “historical, dark, and foggy old South American cities like Lima, Peru.” During the show, we saw lots of coats and jackets with gold and silver applications. Dress shirts and knitted pants were also quite common looks. Fabrics used ranged from 100% organic Pima Cotton and Alpaca, to leather and wool cashmere. The color palette consisted of basic black, white and beige, along with copper, chocolate and red. A combination of solids and prints kept the collection interesting. Two prints in particular stood out from the looks; a Peruvian Dog print used for some of the shirts, and an eye-catching cranberry zigzag pattern used in knitted leggings. Models were styled with side-part hair; the women’s loose waves falling freely. Charcoal under-eye liner put emphasis on the eyes for the makeup. Black leather and animal print shoes and booties completed the looks. Sergio delivered a cool and cohesive collection, and each look held an element of intrigue. This once menswear designer continues to prove that his talent and craft can transcend to women’s fashion. TexT: Zoha MeMari PhoTos: seManT Jain, Ph.D.
