PIERRE FREY

Spirit of the New World

Prestige Indonesia - - News -

the discovery of New World with the Ara­pa­hos col­lec­tion. Com­posed of em­broi­deries with geo­met­ric pat­terns, jacquards, stripes and prints, the col­lec­tion pro­poses a view of the Amer­i­can West sit­u­ated some­where be­tween fan­tasy and re­al­ity.

The col­lec­tion evokes the Na­tive Amer­i­can cul­ture, where the na­tives live in har­mony with their en­vi­ron­ment and carry on a never-end­ing di­a­log with the spirit world. It of­fers a per­cep­tion of the ter­ri­tory from the Rock­ies to the Great Plains with a per­fect bal­ance be­tween re­spect and free­dom.

Imag­i­na­tion and rein­ter­pre­ta­tion have taken the lead in the com­bi­na­tion of de­signs and the very mod­ern chro­matic range. Colours from the col­lec­tion echo each other, some­times in tra­di­tional ochers and blues, some­times in bold and con­tem­po­rary shades, with mix­tures of wa­ter lily pur­ple, mi­mosa and emer­ald green.

Founded in 1935, the House of Pierre Frey cre­ates su­pe­rior up­hol­stery fab­rics. In­ven­tive and deeply eclec­tic, the house draws its in­spi­ra­tion from the art of far-away eth­nic groups, the French 18th cen­tury and con­tem­po­rary art. Pierre Frey col­lec­tions mix ma­te­ri­als and mo­tifs that are re­united in har­mo­nious colours. Each col­lec­tion is a story, a trip that is made pos­si­ble with the com­bined ef­forts of his son, Patrick Frey, as well as the de­sign­ers, the mas­ter weavers, print­ers and em­broi­der­ers
