Denim Delights - NEW YORK - Peru Moda

Peru Moda showcased an exciting seated runway show on the 19th of November, to mark the 5th anniversary of a trade agreement between Peru and the United States.

IMG_5826.JPG The event included fabulous collections by designers such as Art Atlas, Emporium by Jorge Luis Salinas, and Sergio Davila – who stunned the audience at NYC Fashion Week this year, with his men’s collections featuring pieces made from alpaca and Pima cotton.

IMG_5859.JPG Jorge Luis Salinas, whose Emporium label is a playground for denim lovers such as myself, had his models strut down the catwalk in textured denim trousers, long flowered shirt-style dresses trimmed with denim and big utilitarian pockets, and mini denim crop-tops. Check out the gorgeous long-waisted fringe coats for the perfect feminine touch.

IMG_5829.JPG Sergio Davila (below) needs no introduction. Primarily a menswear label, his designs incorporate Pima cotton and alpaca wool, blended with soft slinky leather. The catwalk displayed a selection of his leather aviator and bomber jackets, as well as fitted leather pants and shorts. Models also wore printed parka jackets and fabulous waistcoats with velvety smooth Pima cotton tees.
