Layers of Meaning


Inspired by the traditional Mexican poncho, our vision layers in new meaning and relevance from a world of loose-fitting, versatile garments. Chamantos, kimonos, jorongos, ruanas, serapes, capes, ponchos, pashminas, shawls, dashikis, bufandas, chalinas, djellabas, caftans, wraps — almost every culture (across the world and across the centuries) — has its own version of a loose, versatile garment that is deeply identified with its tradition and heritage. We recreate (“Recreo”) these traditional forms, reinterpreting them in fine silks, cashmeres, wools, linens and more.
