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.

How should men dress according to the occasion (in winter!)

alpaca clothin for men

When dressing, men prefer to give priority to comfort and convenience over fashion trends.

And although it’s not a secret that they don’t enjoy shopping as much as women, it is necessary that when they do, they acquire key pieces that can work on different occasions, especially if the weather is cold and they need to make a good impression.

In Sol Alpaca we are experts in creating useful and functional garments taking advantage of the textile fiber quality of Peruvian alpaca, and considering also global fashion trends; that is why today we want to offer a practical guide on how to dress for every occasion in winter season for men who need a little guidance.

 

Office

Whether you work in a formal or casual environment, it is important that you give a good impression to your office colleagues and allies, especially those in senior positions, because as the saying goes “as they see you, they treat you.” A good choice for a professional look on cold days is a cardigan with buttons (it can also be used with a tie) or with a v-neck. You can also play with the textures and patterns of the shirt.

Saturday night

If you have a special date or just a night out with your friends, the best option is to combine a dark jean with a thick sweater. This way you can feel warmer and also have a casual touch. The Weekend Cable Cardigan is definitely a basic for this season.

Travel

Packing for a trip (leisure or work) is often a problem for many; usually they packed more -or less- than what they need, and usually it’s never proper. If you are traveling in winter, the key is to have a good coat, because it will be the garment that prevails in all your changes of clothing. Try to have one with a solid color and consider a bigger size of what you usually wear because your will have other layers below (shirt and sweater). This garment will be essential to enjoy your winter with style.

Family day

For a family day there is nothing better than to look and feel comfortable. This is the time when you are free to use the colors and prints that you like and define you. A patterned or striped sweater is ideal for both day and night. You can combine it with jeans and sport shoes.

New Sol Alpaca Collection Fall Winter 2016- 2017

caro03

We are very excited to be sharing with you a scoop of our new Sol Alpaca clothing collection: Fall Winter 2016 – 2017, that we will be launching in stores (Peru and Chile) and in our online store in the next few days.

 

Our inspiration for this season comes from the artworks of peruvian painters who in the seventeenth century took references of the drawings, textures, silhouettes and beauty of the work that craftsmen did on the same time period. When seeing those masterpieces, if you pay close attention, there is a fine relationship between these artists; it is like one inspires the other’s work.

c001

 

And of course alpaca, our main raw material, was also a part of the inspiration for this new collection. In Sol Alpaca we are very proud of our legacy and our fine and warm fibre, the Andean Heritage we work to prevail over time.
With this combination of ideas and inspiration, we created over 90 garments designed for all kinds of shapes and taste, so people from all over the world can have and enjoy one of the most beautiful things a person can have from Peru and its Andean Heritage.

We really hope you love this collection as much as we do, and that it can make you feel warmer when you need it the most. Soon we will give you more news. 😉
