New York Fashion Week, Sergio Davila Spring 2009

Peruvian Designer Sergio Davilaholds a special place in my heart as I've worked on his show for the past two seasons. However, this season, Davila hit the big time with an official Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week show. Held in The Salon, Bryant Park's smallest venue, the collection was primarily menswear, with a sprinkling of 5-6 looks for us girls - his first foray in womenswear.

The Do's:

  • Innovative knits for men and women.
  • An easy, neutral color palette
  • Extremely wearable, no tweaks required.

The Don't's:

  • While Davila's looks for men are easily translatable to real life, many are a tad simple for a runway.

The Bon Mot

Davila designs easy basics but with a modern cut and beautiful details (hard to see in this video) for men.
