A PEACE TREATY’s F/W 2012 SAFAR Collection pays tribute to the dusty traveler of both hemispheres, the Berbers of North Africa and the South American gaucho. While divided by deserts, mountains and oceans, the cultures of both the desert craftsman and the vaquero align in their nomadic lifestyles, crossing entire countries in a lifetime, be it by foot, horseback, or camel. The mesmerizing textiles, tapestries, and hand-knotted carpets and pile-rugs of the Berber tradition as well as the layered dress of the gaucho -- fringed ponchos, striped scarves, and embroidered cloths -- are all evoked in SAFAR’s nomadic overture.
