All year cold – “Revelation” Fall Winter Collection – Backstage

Sol Alpaca New Collection Revelation Backstage Andean Heritage

This time our new adventure starts in Chiguata, from Quechua:  Chiri that means cold and Wata that means all year, “all year cold”, with this in mind, it seemed the best place to bring out a preview of the garments and accessories that will keep you warm the next Fall Winter season and the Andean heritage that inspired our new collection “Revelation”. A unity of culture, past and present.

 

Sol Alpaca Andean Heritage Chiguata Landscape Backstage Revelation New Collection

 

Chiguata sports for its stunning landscapes that display the natural beauty of the Andean mountains, cobblestone streets, and quaint little stone houses; a perfect backdrop to show off our traditionally inspired clothes and garments of our newest collection REVELATION for Fall/Winter 2017-2018. Chiguata is a perfect representation of modern Peru as a whole with the architecture showing clear Incan influence but with cultural mixture that makes it the diverse and beautiful country we know and love today. With this reflecting the theme of the collection we are so honored to have shown this hidden jewel of the country.

Centuries ago, Pizarro´s secretary wrote a letter to the Spanish king, Charles V, revealing the first contact between the Spanish Conquerors and a civilization with a culture of ancient traditions, the Inca Empire.

The letter describes the cargo of the Inca trading raft captured in 1527:

LAYERING THIS WINTER

Pattern play and layering can be fun in putting together a great outfit. But although it’s a cold season, buildings are so overly heated that working in layers is easier than overheating.
Wearing an Alpaca cardigan under one of our jackets will be the best option for this winter. The whole outfit will maintain you warm outdoors, and while indoors, with the Alpaca cardigan you will be at the perfect temperature.

A longstanding project becomes a reality

Sol Alpaca AMANO Collection

The Amano Textile Museum and Sol Alpaca have joined forces to save examples of wonderful pre-Columbian textile art – an invaluable heritage of mankind with more than 12000 years of history.

Today we are introducing our AMANO COLLECTION, a longstanding project that becomes a reality. The development of a small but sophisticated collection of stoles, whose design has been inspired by the marvellous textiles of the pre-Columbian Andean cultures, in their forms, contrasts and histories.

Sol Alpaca AMANO Collection
The AMANO collection, bases its designs on the characteristics of the ancient Chancay, Huari and Mochica cultures, blending their forms in a high-quality fabric and reinterpreting the iconography created by the ancient Andean people to represent their most sacred beliefs, their representations of power and their intimate relationship with nature.

We invite you to participate in this rich tradition.

Chancay - Sol Alpaca AMANO Collection

The Chancay people were outstanding weavers who experimented with the artistic possibilities of textiles. Among their notable creations are beautiful, delicate lace fabrics symbolizing the equilibrium and richness of the sea and bestowing abundance and fertility on the home.

Mochica - Sol Alpaca AMANO Collection

Border ornaments with step designs and triangles are recurring elements in the culture of the Moche or Mochica people, masters of the northern coastal desert. The symbols were permanent elements of their iconography, and were related to order and the sacred powers of its rulers.

Huari - Sol Alpaca AMANO Collection

The Huari people built the first Andean empire. Their most characteristic designs correspond to symbols of power, such as step designs and waves, where symmetry and stylization predominate, symbolizing the order of their society and the prestige of their gods.

AMANO MUSEUM

The Amano Textile Museum was founded at the initiative of the Japanese businessman, Yoshitaro Amano, to protect the cultural heritage of Peru from destruction and looting.

In 1964 the Amano Museum was established, housed in one of the first buildings in Peru designed as a museum. It came to be acknowledged as one of the most important exhibition spaces for Peruvian textile art and a cooperation bridge linking Japanese and Peruvian researchers.

Sol Alpaca AMANO Collection

Fifty years later, the Amano family took the decision to remodel the museum in line with the founder’s tradition of service and research.
The new concept, called AMANO – PRE-COLUMBIAN TEXTILE MUSEUM, offers contemporary exhibition premises completely devoted to the world of pre-Columbian textiles under modern display and conservation conditions.

Mystical autumn in Sogay – a photography session

sol-alpaca-double-rainbow-fall-winter-2016

05h:30 … a double rainbow greets us – unusual for a Peruvian autumn, and a good omen for the exhibition of designs and colours that is to take place in the village of Sogay, 35 km from the city of Arequipa.

Sol Alpaca autumn winter 2016 2017 photography session

Stepped cobbled streets, muleteers’ paths, and houses built of “sillar”, the white local stone, all overlooking the little valley of the River Yarabamba provided a picturesque backdrop for the display of garments and accessories of the new Sol Alpaca collection for autumn/winter 2016/2017.
