Yesterday I had the chance to visit Cécile from Matière Noire‘s studio. We talked for about an hour and she showed me the pieces we saw in her show. I quickly noticed the great attention to detail , from isometric pleats to strategically placed zippers. Raw materials contrasting with silk draping make the clothes have a very urban and wearable aesthetic. She also shared with me her mood boards and sketches , what inspires her . She said that she finds a lot of inspiration from the austerity of the amish culture and also , the elements that surround us , which explains the sand pouring procession during her presentation. One of my favorite pieces was a beautiful silk midi-length dress with a cotton miniskirt over it , a great combination of textures. In fact , texture and contrast are probably the words that describe Matière Noire best.

Now , I’m off to a little shoot , I can’t wait to share that with you!
