The Sergio Davila Spring 2009 collection was directly inspired by the European and Asian immigrants of the Thirties who left their homelands in search of a better life. This sense of the past was integrated through out a collection that paid homage to the designer’s family. The line also blended Davila’s South African heritage along with a contemporary New York lifestyle. The clothing had an energy which reflected merchants, politicians, socialites, and everyone in between.

Mixing Barrington San Miguel Industrial Textiles with pima cotton gave diversity to a visually interesting juxtaposition of fabrics. This unusual combination played upon the designers roots while remaining thoroughly modern. Vintage accessories lent a historical feel to the line that was brimming with hoodies, cardigans, polo shirts, vests, suits, and shorts. The looks covered a lot of ground, and by designing such deeply personal clothing, Davila left his heart on the runway.
