Pierre-Louis Mascia: Ran

For FW22, Pierre-Louis Mascia titled his collection Ran — a word that translates to both “chaos” and “battle” in Japanese.

Inspired by the Akira Kurosawa film of the same name, Pierre-Louis describes his own battle as “for the survival of beauty.”

Working in his chosen medium of brightly patterned silk and cashmere, he defines the wardrobe of the modern aestheticist.

Pierre-Louis draws his motifs from a wealth of global inspiration: from the sleek bottle design of perfumer Serge Lutens and the futurist art deco paintings of Tamara de Lempicka to medieval Japanese samurai garb and traditional Navajo weavings.

Despite their disparate patterns, the prints blend together in a rich harmony.

Tartan, florals, regimental stripes and antique woodcuts splash across his silks for a divinely maximal aesthetic that is unabashedly Pierre-Louis Mascia.
