    Peruvian Fashion Designer Chiara Macchiavello Launches ESCUDO Brand

    An air of positive energy charged the atelier and showroom of Peruvian fashion designer Chiara Macchiavello, as she and her team made the final touches to the first collection of ESCUDO that will debut at Copenhagen’s Fashion Week, which begins today.

    Simon and I had previously met Chiara in September 2013 when we accompanied travel writer Lauren Holmes, as she was researching for her article, “Lima’s Life Force: Barranco on a clifftop”, published in the winter edition of London’s Alto design magazine. On our first visit to Casa Macchiavello, the workshop and collection were still in the works, so on this occasion we went to touch base with the up-and-coming designer and to have a privileged preview of the Fall-Winter ’14/’15 collection before the team set off to Europe.

    Casa Machiavello, the first fashion house of its kind in Lima, occupies the second floor of a restored house tucked on an unassuming street in the art district, Barranco, just across the road from the Museum of Contemporary Art. Climbing a white, wooden staircase brought us to the ESCUDO showroom, also painted white, with large windows that flooded the space with cool light. Dress forms showcased pieces from the collection like a hand-knitted royal blue dress, and a woven Baby Alpaca wrap trenchcoat with wide, rounded lapels and belted with a black, pompom adorned belt. Though it is summer now in Peru, the beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces on display throughout the atelier had me wishing for winter to come sooner.

    Chiara greeted us with a smile and guided us through the showroom and workshop. In spite of the nerves a first runway show would undoubtedly cause any fashion designer, she seemed relaxed during our visit. She shared that people who had previewed the collection, including the renowned photographer and fellow Peruvian, Mario Testino, had provided her with positive feedback and reacted favorably to ESCUDO.

    Chiara explained to us that she is highly influenced by popular and folk art and has incorporated elements of these into her designs, including the actual atelier, modeled after the camiones, or trucks, of Peru whose wooden cargo trailers are painted with the personal symbols and mottos of the drivers. One of her earlier collections showcased hand-painted jackets, styled after the famous fluorescent “Chicha” concert posters made famous by the popular artist Elliot Tupac. Throughout the atelier I spotted brilliantly colored masks and costume pieces from traditional festivals held in the provinces of Peru, resting on shelves and tables, hanging on the walls.

    The current collection likewise manifests Chiara’s dedication to incorporating elements of traditional folk culture into her modern fashion design. The collection marries the long-celebrated, traditional weaving and embroidery techniques of the Andes with the contemporary cuts and edgy innovations of modern haute couture that can be seen on runways of fashion-forward cities like Paris, London, Milan and Copenhagen. Printed on the tag of every piece is the ESCUDO motto, “Devoted to design, Committed to Heritage”. Trendy knit caplets are adorned with Peruvian coins, t-shirts made with 100% Peruvian Pima cotton are screen printed with lines from the signature pattern of the Shipibo peoples of the Amazon and smartly cut mini-dresses are embellished with impeccably arranged, monochromatic pompoms made from alpaca fur. Colorful silky tops interspersed among the showroom racks bore the ESCUDO emblem, cross-like in appearance with a rounded outline that makes it look like a crest—which is of course, the point.

    “Clothing acts like our armor, our shield, that protects us against the elements,” she told us when we asked about the brand name, which translates as both “shield” and “crest”, or “Coat of Arms”, in English. She continued that crests were once (and still are) used to identify aristocratic families, royalty, nations, and in this sense, clothing does the same, it outwardly represents our identities.

    Beyond representing individual identity, Chiara’s collection draws heavily on aspects of Peruvian identity, its rich and varied cultural heritage, which is being revitalized across the country. The succinct brand vision, also featured on the ESCUDO tag, reads, “One history, one people, one sentiment, one identity”. As the designer described to us, the clothing itself has a history, the process that brings a piece from the original concept to the physical garment, which involves much more than we might imagine when we see it on a rack or in a shop window.

    Ich würde mir wünschen, dass mehr Leute endlich dem billigen Cashmere, es gibt auch hochwertiges, teures, das jeder Harzkrämer anbietet,
    auch mal der Alpaca-Wolle und dem Guanaco mehr Aufmerksamkeit schenken würden - Vicuna kennen ja schon viele Leute, die bereit sind viel Geld dafür zu bezahlen.

    Wenn Sie Probleme mit dem Einkauf haben und keinen Onlineshop finden, dann wissen Sie ja wie Sie mich erreichen.

    Video aus Puno, Peru, über die Zertifizierung von Alpaca-Züchtern/-innen.

    Bitte nicht darüber aufregen, dass die Alpacas während der Schur festgebunden sind:
    So kann gewährleistet werden, dass sich die Tiere, weil ruhig gestellt, nicht verletzt werden.
