When you think Peruvian you probably think bright colors, ponchos, and tribal prints. In Jonny Cota's unique style he some how managed to take the inspiration of young nomads trekking through the Pervuvian mountains and made his own punk style. Skingraft's line is know for leather working and there was no shortage of that this season. Cota's Fall '15 line features lots of leather, shearling, silk wool jersey, cashmere, and hand woven tapestries.
I love that he took an idea that is usually bright and full of prints, and truly made it his own style. You can see the inspiration of Peru from the ponchos, vest, and scarves in the collection. I'm a huge fan of his leather work, so I was happy to see this collection full of it. The hats on the other hand, were reminiscent of that of Pharrell's...even though I hate to admit it, I sort of love them. There is something about Cota's line that makes me really excited about seeing it, I always get so giddy before his show. He is a designer that has his own vision, knows his clients, and isn't afraid to not follow the trends (there were no colored coats in this collection). Cota is doing his thing and is doing right. With that said I would like to get my hands on a pair of those leather motor pants. Can you imagine that with a Georgine fur jacket? I think I just died thinking about it.
What do you think of Skingraft's Fall 2015 collection?
