Pierre-Louis Mascia uses collage to create intricate patterns of surprising visual clarity which he prints allover wearable items.
Mascia, a trained illustrator, hails from Toulouse, France. He launched the Pierre-Louis Mascia line in 2007, under the tutelage of the Uliassi brothers, owners of the Achille Pinto printing factory in Como, Italy, whose glorious history dates back to eight decades of excellence in the field.
The peaceful fight of Bauhaus strictness and Rococo abandon translates into a mix of control and anarchy.
Mascia’s compositions are flat patterns that usually begin in 3D, getting closer to their final, flat layout through a process emotional, intuitive edit. When worn, they regain volume.
