We’re always thrilled to get news from Mother of Pearl and their next collaboration with artist Polly Morgan has us buzzing. Morgan’s abstract animal prints from her renowned art portfolio provide the background for this Autumn/Winter collection, and we’re mesmerized by the bejeweled insects and feathers that elevate classic silk shirts, trousers, cropped swing jackets, pencil skirts and cocoon coats from mere clothing to wearable palettes of perfection.
We should warn you: Morgan’s creations aren’t your mother’s animal prints. Morgan and Mother of Pearl have collaborated on unique designs that pair the images of assorted wild feline skin designs in ensembles that will see strangers in the street do a double-take and walk away in envy. You want a triple-take as you sashay through your day? Then we recommend clashing an animal design with a jewel-studded insect pattern for maximum impact and guaranteed street-style shots.
We may be between seasons but it’s always the right time for exquisite layers. The AW13 collection will be available in stores later this year, but if you like what you’re seeing Mother of Pearl’s current collaboration with New York artist Francesco Simeti is full of transeasonal pieces and available now via My Wardrobe. Prices start at £124.00 for a silk top.
