Among its unpainted brick houses, the Bolivian city of El Alto is also home to the eye-catching and bold buildings designed by architect Freddy Mamani. These buildings, that many call “Cholets,” were the beginning of a distinctive style that emerged in the early 2000s now called Neo-Andean Architecture. It defies colonialist and modern architecture, and reclaims Aymara culture and heritage. Mamani uses traditional indigenous symbols, like the condor or the Andean Cross, and his constructions feature straight lines, diagonal arrangements and geometric shapes, incorporating the rich colorful palette of indigenous textiles. Tomer was fascinated by the unique geometry of his work, as well as the similarities between the construction of these buildings and the inner structure of tailored garments. Rooted in traditional tailoring details, this menswear collection itself is a translation of Mamani’s Neo-Andean style, colors and shapes in wearable form. Each outfit features a head-to-toe look, demonstrating a wealth of colors and textures.
