I was inspired by a 1930′s movie studio studio photo of a woman and what might have been a star dog, C Coles Phillips fade-away illustrations, and, of course fashion. This is my mom’s newfoundland Brody and the pines he runs around in in the background. I got the coolest pocket square in Japan with a blueberry pattern on it and lost it so the pattern on her coat is a shout out to that poor pocket square lying in the street somewhere in the world.

Carlos Revilla was born August 19, 1940 in Clermont-Ferrand, France, the son of a Peruvian diplomat and a French mother. His father’s profession took young Revilla to several countries in Europe, Latin America and the United States. Between 1956 and 1961 he was a student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam with his first exhibitions presented in Brussels, Paris and Rome. While living in Cadaqués, Spain, he formed a strong friendship with Salvador Dali, Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp who had great creative impact on him and his surrealist style. In search of his roots, from 1960 he traveled to Peru, the country he felt was his true home.
