Matiere’s SS18 collection is inspired by “Reflections”
In a time of reflection, both internally and externally, literally and metaphorically, we continue to examine the core ethos and foundation of the brand Matiere. Exploring the merging of eco-friendly fabrics coupled with the use of metallic and reflective high-tech materials. Fusing the importance of reducing global impact, while understanding the need for protective, functional comfort. It is a time to embrace the technical future while continuing to be respectful of our origins. With the radically changing climate and elements, we will continue to push boundaries moving the needle forward, designing and developing a future of technical sustainability.
MATIERE is inspired from the French word meaning “material” or “subject matter.” Established in 2013, by founders Henry Choi and Scot Shandalove. The Los Angeles, CA based design lab is continuously evolving the seamless integration of form, function, and comfort into their sleek modern aesthetic with an understated yet refined point of view. The brand’s global research and development of luxury fabrics is achieved in partnership with world-class knitting mills, from the Wakayama Prefecture of Japan to the woven technical expertise found in the Italian Province of Como. This drives the brand’s innovative collections combined with experimentation in textile dying and production treatments.
