Juan Carlos Obando



Juan Carlos Obando’s collection was a testament to what he calls his company’s core attribute: “Modern garments with vintage craftsmanship values”. This season, he drew upon epic films of the American West, especially those by great mid-century directors like Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah and John Ford. The idea was expressed with beautifully tailored peplum jackets, slit skirts and slim pants, all in fabrics that were pigmented, waxed, stained and charred. The effect, as evidenced by an eggplant purple belted coat, was somewhere between mud-washed and tie-dyed. Hand-pleated silks in in dusky vegetable-dye colors were collaged and twisted into body-hugging dresses, taking this earthy yet elegant collection from day into evening.
