SPRING/SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION

The Continuum Collection mainly is fueled by the energy of Morocco, as alluded to in Henri Matisse’s The Moroccans, and reflects a Miles Davis inspired effortlessness.  Rendered in bold, monochromatic colors such as taupe, mauve and sapphire blue, recycled poly and natural fabrics such as linen, cotton, poplin, canvas, seersucker and twill provide versatility and functionality to the sublime designs.  The garments feature seamless construction and silhouettes are both fluid and structured as iterated in the blazers and trousers.  Rhythmic patterns of the Moroccan mosaic from the Bahia Palace in Marrakesh adorn the cuffs and neckline of transitional jackets and accent the variegated tunics.  The double-breasted seersucker suit is treated with green tea and coffee, giving an edge to Southern classic attire.  The elongated linen tunics with their clean lines, offer easy sophistication and comfort.  The attention to functionality in movement also references a reinterpretation of high school sport uniforms.  This is menswear outside the confines of tradition, meant to be worn without restrictions or boundaries, in a nod to aesthetic freedom.

 

 

ABOUT EDWIGE PIERRE AND DESIGNER JOSHUA PIERRE

Joshua Pierre is the Creative Director and Founder of EDWIGE PIERRE, a menswear label that is inspired by the modern, international man who is individualistic, intellectually curious and has a multicultural sensibility.  The name is derived from Pierre’s late grandmother who was a master seamstress and pays homage to her passion for craftsmanship and impeccable tailoring as well as determination and resilience.

 

The collections are identified by easy comfort, high quality fabrics and impeccable construction as well as cross-cultural references that broaden the aesthetic in menswear, inspiring freedom of expression.  The garments are usually seamless and are constructed with Italian and Japanese textiles with a focus on durability and versatility as well as refinement and sophistication iterated in innovative and artful detailing such as bias cut collars, watch pockets, and Mandarin collars.

 

After graduating from DePaul University (Chicago, IL) and earning his Master’s Degree in Design and Fashion Brand Management from Polimoda (Florence, Italy), Pierre worked at iconic brands such as J. Crew, Intermix and RSVP Gallery before launching EDWIGE PIERRE with a limited edition capsule collection in 2014 during Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy.  Pierre was born and raised in Houston, TX and New York City.  He currently works and resides in New York.
