These amazing pieces are created by Uruguayan designers, Mercedes Arocena and Lucia Benitez, who was recently awarded the "Dinamic Eco Chic Award" for this collection called "Dominga" at the Mittelmoda design contest in Italy. I love how they created intricate designs yet simple.
"The designers’ express, “Dominga comes as a result of an experimental investigation process that begins with the wool, a natural sustainable and warm fiber that is part of our history and culture”. Drawing inspiration from the Uruguayan rural backdrop, the collection reincarnates the traditional ‘Gaucho’ into iconic garments such as the ‘poncho’, the ‘ruana’ or the chiripa’."
