Interior designers Dorothée Boissier and Patrick Gilles are very inspired by artists, nature and objects that have a story.
Knowing their passion for old documents, Pierre Frey, having worked with them on various projects, has opened its heritage collection to them, in which they gleefully immersed themselves, selecting three fabrics for which they have imagined a capsule collection.

The “Les Trois Sœurs” collection reveals three rich fabrics. A jacquard cashmere Napoleon 1st, a brocaded lampas from the 18th century and an English chintz from the beginning of the 20th century, whose patterns and colours have been revisited. Three eras, three techniques, three distinct styles whose choice underlines the singularity of Gilles & Boissier’s ideas and the artistic eclecticism that defines the Maison Pierre Frey.

Monochrome, beige, white, Dorothée Boissier and Patrick Gilles clearly prefer materials to colour.  The colours of this capsule collection in wool, silk and cotton are soft, all in shades of beige, grey green or denim blue.

A raw cotton is chosen for the weft to preserve its natural appearance under the icy effect of chintz, the originality of the lampas lies in its finely chiselled satin background and the natural wool, marked with great flexibility, is carefully chosen and woven in the Pierre Frey workshop in northern France.

Through this capsule collection, we can see the ardor of Maison Pierre Frey to put its technical know-how at the service of artists, allowing them to tailor the constraints of weaving or printing with precision to achieve to their creative wishes. This perfect mastery gives the artist exceptional freedom and, as Dorothée Boissier states, “it is important to feel completely free to create”.
