TORONTO FASHION WEEK: MATIS by Lucian Matis' Kaleidoscope Colours
This season marks the second collection for MATIS by Lucian Matis. Unlike his namesake couture brand, Lucian Matis, this collection is affordable and created for the everyday. For Spring/Summer 2013, MATIS showcased vibrant hues with brilliant graphic prints and tailored separates. Whether he’s incorporating exotic flora and fauna into a colourful print or shoulder detailing to a classic tailored blazer, you know that Matis looks at everything, down to the finer details.
“A woman’s life is very diverse,” says Matis of his latest collection, “Armour against draped soft materials is symbolic of her embracing change. Silky drapable fabrics that are heavily embellished become the encrustation of confidence and beauty.” Creating a cohesive diffusion collection for Matis is inspiring, “I love the woman who
embraces all facets of life and my creations are to empower her. What inspires me most is to see her in all her strength and femininity. I couldn’t ask for more.”
