The debut of New York Fashion Week Men’s has been a much anticipated event since it’s announcement earlier this year. The event was bustling with a collective of talented designers who were ready to show their most dapper designs for Spring/Summer 2016.
Peruvian designer Sergio Davila, who was the first Peruvian designer to show at MBFW in 2008, brought a collection of luxurious and refined menswear to the table this year.
The designer, who has previously collaborated with Mara Hoffman and Nicholas Kunz to present collections in 2009, continued to bring high quality to the forefront of menswear.
Davila’s collection (pictured below) showed at the beautiful rooftop lounge at PHD Dream in Downtown Manhattan, which complemented his sleek designs. For Spring 2016, Sergio Davila was inspired by freedom:
“Proposing a functional, elegant, and smart wardrobe inspired by the ardent and ambitious New York man, Sergio Davila continues to bridge the preppy sportswear of the American Northeast with the sumptuous and clean textiles of his native Peru. .Jacquard tank tops and polo shirts are paired with cuffed, linen-cotton slacks in earth tones. Jackets with hoods for a rainy day are mixed with gauzy, sumptuous knit tops that offer a languid, relaxed appeal.”
Davila’s combination of exclusive cotton textile blends from his homeland Peru bring an air of decadent sophistication to his casual and chic pieces.
Paired with gorgeous colors and a few palm-like prints are timeless staples that are sure to be seen on the east and west coast this upcoming spring and summer season.
