thesartorialist Another monochromatic color story in the market of Urubamba.
While working on this image I couldn’t help but notice how perfectly she fits within her surroundings.

thesartorialist In the market of Urubamba,, instead of dressing in rich contrast colors (Monday’s example) or focusing on bold mixes of neon colors and diamond patterns (Tuesday’s example), I noticed that women here dress in a more monochromatic color palette. Later today I have an exampleof a very simple blue/white look with just a hint of green and yellow in her shopping bag.
Notice how beautifully her hair works with her ensemble, like she built her look around her silver locks.

  •   almainahat How disconnected can we be from our fellow humans? Do some of you really think poor people lack a sense of beauty just for being poor? How simple minded you are, and how lucky you think you are??? These cultures invest time in their clothes, those fabrics and patterns are mostly made by them, the clothes they wear - they do wear for days and YES, they invest time and little money choosing them. As the Mexican lady @adrilopita correctly said - it may be the only thing they have. These are proud people, culturally rich and with tons of different customs. Do not dismiss their creativity, their sense of fashion, their knowlege and wisdom, asuming they have no clue of the outfit they put together. THAT IS INSULTING. 7d
  •   lkmky @almainahat ay por favor si hablas español... Deberías entender que ese comentario en su cuenta personal es broma, chiste. Tanta conmoción por un simple punto de vista. Todos tenemos derecho a opinar. Basta. 7d
  •   adrimargalit @adrilopita I’m Peruvian and my grandmother was a dressmaker in a village just like Urubamba. I used to help at her store selling clothes to this women and I can tell you from experience that this people choose their clothes as carefully as anybody else. It’s an insult to judge people from being poor, just because they don't have money doesn't mean they don't have inherent taste and style as @johannaleitch very well explained. As a Peruvian I’m very proud @thesartorialist can admire and recognize their beauty and sense of fashion through this pictures. Your comments are disrespectful to this people and it shows a bit of ignorance. I will suggest you to travel more and get more involved with this communities. There is more history and style in their clothes than most of us dress everyday. 6d
  •   mayra_coral i'm peruvian and let me tell u guys that these people are indeed poor, and the way they dress is traditional, but (of course!) they decide what to wear everyday and just as any human being, each one of them has a personal style, :D 5d

thesartorialist Notice how different the color palette and use of trim and pattern is from the Peruvian women I posted yesterday 1w

thesartorialist One of the joys of my career is I never know what I will find around the next corner of the street or bend in the road.
On my second day in Peru, staying in the village of Urubamba, we took a road that snaked through the hills just outside town.
Farms, terraced hills, random livestock, the hills are full of a life not much different than it would have been one hundred years ago or more.
You can imagine how my jaw dropped when I saw this young girl, with her halo of flowers.
More than from a different place, she (and her little brother) were from a different place and time. At that age I barely let my little girls handle the TV remote control, let alone go off on a journey down a winding hillside road loaded down with a large clay pot on their back.
Everyday I’m so thankful that I get to discover the world in all its endless and fascinating diversities and similarities.

thesartorialist Emerald Green, royal purple, deep burgundy and navy! What a beautifully sophisticated color combination.
This woman was selling home-made beer to the very local community in the very local town square, no big deal and yet such honest, simple beauty of everyday life there.

thesartorialist After spending about eight days in Peru last week, I was pleasantly surprised by how unique the dress style was by region and , sometimes, by village.
In this small village, on the road from Urubamba to Cusco, each lady dressed in wonderfully dramatic color combinations. This woman’s neon orange sweater and leaf green cardigan under another fuzzy yellow outer-cardigan, all worn over a sober slate blue pleated skirt was just one of the delights of a lunch time stopover. Notice the equally wonderful hot pink, red and black combination on the woman in the background.
