At Pierre Frey, the inspiration for a collection often originates from an encounter. In 2010, Patrick Frey and his team crossed the path of an individual who had explored South East Asia on foot. All along his travels, this passionate adventurer had collected textiles as an illustration of the ancestral artistry of often overlooked ethnicities. It is through this encounter that the team discovered the MIAO people, living in the Guizhou province of China, shielded by the moon mountains. The MAOMING collection is an invitation to discover the mysterious art of their textiles, characterised by the use of indigo and polychromatic embroideries.
Ikats, batiks, pleats and geometrical embroideries in a vivid range of colors evoke the talent and know-how of the Miao women.
This collection of textiles coordinates with the GUIZHOU wallpapers & wall coverings collection.View the range on the pierre frey website.
Color is India Madhavi’s signature, which she deploys from Paris to Siwa, from London to Los Angeles. The “Queen of Color”, as she is known, creates her first collection of velvets for Pierre Frey: “TRUE VELVET”.
“Velvet is one of the few fabrics that is sensual to the touch and visually holds color in a way that is bright yet deep. With this collection, the velvet takes on a dimension that is enveloping and joyous.”
This is a game of infinite matches with a range of nearly 80 possible shades, from subtle to saturated, all lustrus and bright.
The collection is available in three weights corresponding to the different qualities of cloth: Fine, medium or bold. Two geometric prints of diamonds or stripes on velvet complement this radiant palette.
