WMCFashion Week Unzipped: Lucian Matis

Posted 9 years ago by myetvmedia

Lucian Matis has a Spring/Summer 2013 collection that is utterly exotic, sophisticated and elegant! It also has an aura of mystery to it – something richly imbued with tales of a far off exotic place. We were so excited to meet him backstage after the show to talk about his runway collection.

Matis’s fashions are for the woman who celebrates her femininity, who loves the clothes she is in. He is an experienced couturier with an international background and a meticulous attention to detail that is reflected in his fashion line. Growing up in his mother’s tailoring shop in Romania and he started to design at a very young age. After studies at the Sibiu Art Institute in Transylvania and he moved to Toronto, Canada in 2000 where he continued his studies at Ryerson University. He is the recipient of multiple fashion awards and is featured in numerous international publications.

Lucian Matis’s WMCFW S/S 2013 collection is inspired by Marrakech, Morocco and informed by his many travels. The mosaics and rich colours of his fabrics are reflect the bold colours and patterns found in the tiles of Marrakech. He wanted the collection to reflect a “dream of Marrakech” not to reproduce it. The fabric are designed by Matis and created in house for his collection.

Graceful lines, shimmering silks with bold mosaic design broken up by soft nude tones in A-line skirts just below the knee, flowing skirts at mid calf and full-length, cropped shorts and tailored two-piece suits.  On the runway next came dramatic alligator leathers, textured fabrics in bold, sensual blacks, reds and yellows in structured styles for day and evening. These are garments meant to give a woman confidence and to compliment her femininity. We absolutely loved them.
