For its first runway show, Matiere took a step in the right direction this season with a spring collection titled “Reflections.”
“It was about taking a step back and reflecting on what was working for us as an emerging brand and what the market wants,” said the designer Scot Shandalove backstage.
Bringing a bit of shape into the mix, he offered up more voluminous silhouettes this time around, in elongated shorts, wide-tailored bombers and an anorak with a dropped shoulder for a roomier fit — all of which succeeded in creating a cleaner look.
True mavens when it comes to fabric selection, the lineup consisted of a combination of true athleti wear and luxe loungewear by utilizing Italian reflective fabrics in outerwear, crinkled water-resistant elongated jackets and a Japanese high-shine, short-sleeved anorak with paneled technical mesh.
By offering up a true California vibe, Matiere is really propelling the ethos of the brand to a cool yet functional tech lounge-y aesthetic.
