We continue the theme of ‘COL*CA’ to pay homage to the Aymara-speaking
Collaguas and the Quechua-speaking Cabanas who inhabited the valley in the pre-Inca era.
Our recent Resort 2020 collection was a first glimpse into Colca’s valleys, and we are now going even deeper with this collection. Let us take you from the earthy grounds of the canyons to the bright sunny sky. Let us show you where minimalist Danish design meets Peru’s culturally rich embroidery artisans.
Ayni’s COL*CA Spring Summer 2020 collection features innovative threads made from the strong Pima cotton, pure organic cotton and the versatile, light Alpaca fiber. We bring you a complete seasonal wardrobe, for casual beach strolls to summer city dates, elevated leisure to contemporary luxury.
The color palette is inspired by Colca’s dramatic natural landscape, its romantic flora, warm sun rays and bright sky. Shapes and silhouettes are inspired by Cantuta, Peru’s national Flower typically found in this region.
We bring together colorful macramé, modern crochet, unexpected color blocking and present-day embroidery on hand cut cotton.
Supporting our wardrobe this season is our shoe line with Cornelio Borda, a Peruvian-Italian brand. Glide into sandals made from sustainable Peruvian fish leather, dyed organically, or walk the city in our hand-embroidered slippers.
COL*CA to us means to “not be satisfied with what you see at a glance, what you take for granted, go further, discover the wonder of risk".
