Create an itinerary including Hilo
Buy specially designed clothes with an unusual and artistic flair at Hilo. The owner of the store was trained in ceramics in Ireland, but found inspiration in making clothes in Peru in 2004. Choose from among clothing and accessories inspired by theatre, dancing, and costumes with a touch of vintage and Victorian influence. Pieces are highlighted by a mixture of fabrics interacting with buttons, lace, and ribbons combined in spontaneous ways. The artist begins her work without a set goal, and in the process itself the piece emerges. Order your clothes during a stay; the shop offers deliveries to hotels with quick service.

  • I bought some pants there, the tailor was so friendly to adjust them twice. They have lots of beautiful clothes and the staff is very friendly and helpful
  • This store has upscale, hand-made clothing. Everything is well made, creative and artistic. It's clear that they put a lot of effort in working out the details on the clothing. The shop is also well decorated with alternatively edgy and retro artwork and items. An antique typewriter or photos of women modeling clothing are dotted around the shop. While we didn't purchase anything, I could easily see my partner dressed in some of the items. That said, the shop seems somewhat out of place in Cusco. It would be more relevant in Los Angeles or New York
  • Love this shop, all the clothes are beautiful and well made, couldn’t decide what to buy! All the pieces are unique and made from great fabrics. I bought a top and asked for a custom piece to be made which has turned out beautifully and fits perfectly. Thank you so much!
  • We had a dress made custom at hilo based on a dress in the shop that was in a different colour. The seamstress/owner was very adaptable, friendly, and made the dress quickly even though we weren’t in a big rush. However when we got back we realized the dress was quite sloppily made compared to the other clothing in the store. We had to redo the hem and spent a lot of time trimming loose threads everywhere. She also didn’t iron the seams as she sewed.
  • Truly unique and cool clothing style and shopping experience. Super friendly staff. Amazing!
