Honoring the “gauchos“, guardians of the South American countryside, and their childhood memories, Sofia Achaval de Montaigu and Lucila Sperber launched a new women ready-to-wear brand called “Àcheval Pampa“.
The brand was presented, during Paris Fashion Week, in a very special cocktail hosted in the Ritz Hotel in Place Vêndome. Surrounded by the bombachas, the typical campo pants, a show on “boleadoras” was held by two Gauchos, in representation of the most typical traditions from La Pampa, Argentina.
Having grown up in Argentina, Sofia Achaval de Montaigu has closely experienced the “gauchos“ spirit and learned to ride horses with them from a very young age.
Admiring the nobility of the singular outfits of these horse riders, Sofia Achaval de Montaigu chose to begin this adventure by reviving that precious and memorable period.
Co-founded with her friend and partner, Lucila Sperber, the brand offers the Pampa’s “bombacha de gaucho“ pants for day and night . All the essential elements of the original “bombacha“ are retained and reinterpreted with modern urban aesthetics.
« With Àcheval we wanted to bring this world back and make it with our time and the new luxury standards ».
Exclusively made in Uruguay, the pants will be available in different fabrics such as cotton, satin, velvet and glitter.
Additionally, the brand will develop other products like leather bags and belts, shirts, turtlenecks and “Àcheval pampa“ branded t-shirts, which are made in Argentina.
Embracing the “Pampa“ feeling, Àcheval offers a new range of unique nonchalant-chic basics.
