Jorge Salinas may have debuted his first collection this season at New York Fashion Week, but let’s just say he made his entrance with a bang! The J. Salinas Fall/Winter 2016 collection was entitled “Paracas”. The name comes from the Paracus culture which is known for extremely complex and beautiful textiles.
From mixed fabrics and layered silk to pleated skirts and alpaca leather-trimmed coats. Salinas incorporated a mix of fabrics from Europe, Peru and New York to bring his vision to life which resulted in a avant-garde wonderland of endless fabric. Every look that came down the runway was a statement in and of itself. I am a sucker for great layering and statement coats, so this collection had my full attention from beginning to end! I felt like I was watching my dream editorial pulls come down the runway, which made my mind go into work mode and got my creative juices flowing!
I am so proud of this designer for blowing it out of the water on his debut collection, and I can’t wait to see what will come next from this brand!
