While in Lima I was going through some photo albums and found two photographs that always strike me. One shows my mom wearing this sexy cable mini-dress, the other shows her wearing a beautiful poncho in Ayacucho against the most incredibly blue sky.
These images inspired the chunky cables in our Mini Cape, Magliera Sweater and Cable Knitcollar. On the accessories you will also find several combinations of cables; specially in our Headband, News Boy hat and Nadia scarf.
I love making chunky, raw looking pieces that when touched reveal an incredible softness. I also like to transmit to the wearer all the work that goes through making one piece. Most of the times there’s no need for explanations…each piece just tells the whole story.
Color and volume is always present with us. Inspired by Peru’s textile tradition and Andean culture, the images are so rich that it’s a never ending source of inspiration. Colors like magenta or how I like to call it “Chola” pink, indigo blue, purple and the natural hues of alpaca wool in grey, black & offwhite.
