Modem Accessories Fall-Winter 2016-2017
Cover by Pierre Louis Mascia
For this edition which is dedicated to the Fashion Accessories Collections Spring/Summer 2016, we gave “carte blanche” to Pierre Louis Mascia, fashion illustrator , art director and fashion designer. Born on June 19th, 1968, Pierre-Louis Mascia divides his time between Paris and the south of France where he lives.
In the Far East as in other countries, Pierre-Louis Mascia has honed his talents as a fashion illustrator without neglecting the technical savoir-faire for unique crafts (embroidery, painting, techniques, folding). Training, cultural openness and interest for the arts are all factors that have enriched his experience as a fashion illustrator, making it easier and interesting to apply those observations
in 3D design.
His fashion illustrations – for the likes of Neiman Marcus and Galeries Lafayette or magazinessuch as Vogue USA, ELLE France, Surface and many others - derive from a powerful crucible of big-name European illustration of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
From learning the art of traditional Japanese Washi papermaking, to studying Illustration at l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts, through his self-taught and instinctive approach of art as a mix of disciplines, Pierre-Louis Mascia is an innovative creator of fashion accessories and a talented fashion illustrator.
During his time as an art director for Who’s Next ready-to-wear and Première Classe accessories salons, he gets a taste of scenography and a full-scale approach of space. With his own brand creating scarves, blankets, bags, small accessories and now knits, Pierre- Louis Mascia expresses the key values of his culture by projecting on luxurious accessories his love for prints and juxtaposition of motifs and materials.
His fashion illustrations have been published in Vanity Fair, Vogue Usa, Vogue Italy, Elle UK, and his commercial clients include Chanel, British Fashion council, Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, Galeries Lafayette, Veuve Cliquot.
