Pierre Frey takes us on a journey, to the discovery of a New World, with the enthusiasm and freshness of a tireless curiosity seeker. Popularized by explorers’ notebooks and the Western genre, the first nations of America magnetize with an irresistible attraction.
The ARAPAHOS and GRAND CANYON collection evokes this culture, where Native Americans live in harmony with their environment and carry on a never-ending dialog with the spirit world. It offers a perception of the territory from the Rockies to the Great Plains with a perfect balance between respect and freedom.
Imagination and reinterpretation have taken the lead in the combination of designs and the very modern chromatic range. Colors echo each other, sometimes in traditional ochers and blues, sometimes in bold and contemporary shades, with mixtures of water lily purple, mimosa and emerald green.
Composed of embroideries with geometric patterns, jacquards, stripes and prints, Arapahos proposes a view of the American Far West that is situated somewhere between fantasy and reality (shamanic visions, sun dance, animal worship or traditional textiles)
This tribute is meant to be eclectic, weaving together fantasy and reality. The designs in this collection were created using a variety of techniques such as weaving, embroidery, hand-drawing with pencil, ink or pastel illustrations and screen printing. This range is brought to life using materials and printing techniques such as matte paint and lacquer, end-on-end laminated linen, non-woven paper in an extra-wide format or traditional printing.
