For Spring/Summer 2012 Mother of Pearl fuses their signature relaxed sportswear inspired aesthetic with high contrast colour blocking and graphic prints from Turner Prize shortlisted artist, Fiona Banner.

Known for her interest in the transference of language into a visual form, Banner’s work, such as ‘Break Point’ and ‘Don’t Look Back’, forms narratives across the collection, from cascading text prints across floor length skirts, jumpsuits and shirts, to punctuation detailing on oversized jersey t-shirts. In addition, Banner has created a custom ISBN (International Standard Book Number) for this collaboration that features throughout the collection. A first for Mother of Pearl, this ISBN officially classifies the SS12 collection as an internationally recognized publication.

Introducing embellishment in the form of beaded collars and embroidered logos, a touch of elegance is added to the sportswear inspired silhouettes. Staple printed and plain silks in both heavier weight and finer feminine crepes make up the core collection while summer materials such as light weight wools, linens and organza add texture and depth to this wearable collection.

A fresh palette of mint and lime greens, pastel oranges, petrol, electric and pale blues are juxtaposed against muted stones, creams and blacks. Banner’s inky, illustrative prints add a gestural energy and depth to the clean colour palette.

The collaboration with Pierre Hardy continues for Spring/Summer 2012 with trainers featuring the season’s signature prints. The sneakers along with a selection of t-shirts, sweatshirts and bags are adding to the growing range of unisex styles from the label.
