For Autumn/Winter 2016, Matiere explores a sense of modern migrations, updating the traditional traveler with the functionalities to explore today’s world. Mixed fabrications reflect the blend of cultural inspirations, from the edgelands of England to the cityscapes of New York. This duality between the natural and the urban is expressed through the use of materials on modern silhouettes. Specialty wools fashion a large part of the collection. Italian virgin wool and woolen gauze plaids provide both texture and warmth, while soft comfort comes in the form of cashmere, kid mohair and crinkled jersey. Varied weights and layered styling play a crucial role in the collection, enabling the traveler to adapt to his next adventure.
Photographed by Kanye West’s personal photographer, Driely S. Carter, around the streets of New York, Matiere’s latest collection displays a textured beauty against the hard imagery of the New York City streets. Model and muse for Autumn/Winter 2016, Adonis Bosso, splashes, runs and poses his way through the downtown streets showcasing the functionality and textures of the brands latest collection.
