Sergio Davila Spring 2009
For Sergio Davila’s spring 2009 offering for men the first two looks sent down the runway where knit blazers. We have never seen or heard of a knit blazer and immediately gave us the feeling of Grandpa. Nor have we ever seen grey or blue tuxedo pants which look more like slacks you would find on third Avenue doormen in New York City. Surprisingly enough what caught our eye was Mr. Davila’s scant few pieces for women? Look number nine was a black silk & baby alpaca “destrozado” top and black baggy trouser and then later with a pair of “Ojo de Perdiz” shorts. The standout pieces for men we thought were his grey light wool trousers and his white canvas shorts. In the end the tale of the retail tape will determine his destiny, but with our attraction to the ladies pieces we would love to see a women’s line.
