Una tapada Limeña


'The colonial authorities made repeated attempts to ban the saya y manto as immoral, but Lima's women refused to be dictated to in matters of fashion and it persisted until the second half of the nineteenth century' [James Higgins, Lima: A Cultural and Literary History, 2006.]

Photographed by Courret Hermanos of Lima.
