Pierre Louis Mascia Fuses Streetwear Attitude With High-End Lux

Exhibitors Spotlight focuses on a selection of brands exhibiting at this year's Pitti Uomo, showcasing their upcoming collections and special upcoming projects.


“The idea is to bring back to life long-forgotten 18th- century prints and using the power of ultra-modern design to catapult them into the 21st century.Those prints tell us about ourselves, about who we are, and I want to be part of that memory. This timeless collection, entirely made from silk, which can be mixed with the prêt à porter line, is above all an encounter with the people who desired, commissioned, then wore those clothes. Their vision has remained intact throughout the centuries. I have simply made some additions and mixed different periods, freeing myself from any constraints or taboos. My only rule is that of creation” Creative Director, Pierre-Louis Mascia.
Paying homage to 18th-century prints, Pierre Louis Mascia’s FW21 collection is a kaleidoscope of vivid prints and patterns. A lush foray into research and skillful production, the project is an energetic fusion of tradition and creative practice.
 
Based around 16 print patterns, the directional collection leans towards maximal statements. From enveloping outerwear to soft, full-bodied fabrics, the pieces make for an eclectic, but harmonious collection. Other highlights include oversized coats and a pea-coat made from soft and enveloping pancake wool, alongside a reversible nylon trench coat and a cardigan with printed panels.
The accessory collection features a printed twill scarf made from cashmere-modal jersey. The twill scarf is finished with Orylag fur. Designed with eye catching fringe silk on all edges, the  scarf features upcycled hand-made fringes.
Overall, the dynamic pieces evoke a feeling of relaxed luxury. Balancing the fine line between high-end opulence and streetwear attitude. Reimagined puffa silhouettes sit perfectly alongside silk sets with matching prints, oversized patterned trousers, and ultra-bold printed pieces.
