Sergio Davila Spring/Summer 2014
Inspired by vintage photographs of 1920s Latin America, designer Sergio Davila recently presents his colourful SS14 collection. With that part of the world having undergone both an architectural and artistic transition during the era, Davila has pinpointed this moment within his stylish interpretation.
Developing his designs within a tropical palette of green, blue and camel hues, this playful collection sees a fusion of bold prints and varied textures. Ultimately having created a youthful range, detailing comes in the form of colour pop laces and contrast turn ups, whilst a prominent use of accessories, particularly hats and socks, adds a touch of individuality and strengthens the Latin American influence.
With checks, prints and separates paired frequently, many looks nod to tonal outfitting, suggesting a continuance of this widespread trend into next year. The aesthetic remains refined yet relaxed, with both casual looks and more office-appropriate outfits on offer.
Notable pieces within the collection include the lightweight beige jacket and the leaf print knit with stretched neckline. However, the contrast panel sweater in cream and brown really stands out due to its simplicity. Combining both linear detailing with urban colours and styling, this piece is instantly accessible and effortlessly wearable.
Proving that inspiration can be found in even the lesser known historical moments, this excellent new collection combines original style with a welcome touch of the American tropics.
