Trompe l’oeil blooms at Maitrepierre PFW F/W23 by Leticia Dare

Dear Shaded Viewers,


The Maitrepierre Fall-Winter 2023/2024 collection is a striking celebration of the harmony between nature and technology, with a focus on the intersection of the two. Drawing inspiration from the Shinto belief of “Shishi-Gami,” the collection contemplates the power of nature and its influence on humanity.

One of the most striking features of the collection is the use of artificial intelligence and computer coding to create prints for the pieces. This results in a trompe l’oeil effect that creates a vivid illusion of flowers and plants. Lily petals wrap around bodies, coats mimic leaves, and wildflowers grow on trousers, creating a seamless fusion of nature and fashion.

The tailored wide leg suiting is a standout element of the collection, with its clean lines and understated elegance. Bright pops of color, including pink, yellow, and neon green, add warmth and vibrancy to the collection, while the use of dead-stock fabrics, recycled materials, and local prints reinforce the brand’s commitment to sustainability.

The collection’s overall aesthetic is both playful and elegant, with a mix of modern technology and classic romance. “The Time to Listen” is an ode to nature that invites us to take a moment to appreciate its beauty and power. The Maitrepierre Fall-Winter 2023/2024 collection is a testament to the brand’s vision and creativity, a celebration of the unique intersection of nature and technology.
