Pierre Louis Mascia F14 (1)For his fall/winter 2014-15 signature collection, Pierre-Louis Mascia found inspiration in an unexpected and multifaceted visual universe.

Eclecticism and diversity enliven the spirit of the brand between decorative density and extreme metissage, as in a wonderful Wunderkammer.

Many different things inspired the creative eye of the designer. The colors and textures of Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, venue of the latest exhibition of Tàpies paintings. The world of curious trivia and rare items at «De Vera» in New York. The Scottish clans tartans recalling the shamanic Iranian Kasgaï carpets. A hemp Christ by the English artist Steve Goddard. The rythms and rap of M.I.A. The quiet words by writer and poet Charles Juliet.

Three-dimensional patterns and graphics of dense wool fabrics, the seduction of layered lace that becomes a bygone memory and a real time emotion.

Dots-checks-lines: the rhythm of black and white is mixed with hints of paisley flowers and Oriental rugs. Afro suggestions are an amazing development in check and formal multicolour menswear for the New Dandy. The man is looking into the future of a recent past.
