Pierre-Louis Mascia's designs resemble that of art collage mixing patterns while paying close attention to color. Mascia, was trained in illustration and resides in Toulouse, France. He launched his brand in 2007 run by brothers Paolo and Matteo Uliassi. The brand began with scarves then expanded into lifestyle wear such as blouses, pants, and jackets.
"Mascia’s compositions are flat patterns that usually begin in 3D, getting closer to their final, flat layout through a process emotional, intuitive edit. When worn, they regain volume. Everything provides inspiration: a mix of vintage fabrics or thorn book pages, laid out in op art mode; antique wallpapers and old pieces of clothing; a curtain, a shadow or maybe even the way tomes are put on a bookshelf. “It all comes from the guts” explains Mascia, who prefers the work to speak by itself."
