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.

  • lenyabSometimes style is accidental and born of necessity. We are allowed to observe people and images and see what we want to see: style, poverty in some cases poverty of style, style despite poverty; it is diversity that's important. Also: I was going to barf if I saw one more shot from Milan.
  • sara_almandoslmao i doubt these women put that much effort in thinking about what they're going to wear. It's just coincidental with where they live, tbh.
  • ohyoni@thecowboygeisha
  • amoarif"Built her look." Amazing.
  • ambringNice!
  • luke1wolfBeautiful! Her looks is definitely not accidental, coincidental or whatever. No matter if we bought are clothes in expensive or cheap stores, or even if we found them on the trash, we always pick what to wear. We always choose what we like no matter how poor we are.
  • alvarocorredorbohorquezSo inspiring!! I have a similar hat and herringbone blazer hahaha...

  • almainahatHow 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.
  • 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.
  • adrianacachay@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.
  • mayra_corali'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
