Richard Saja recently collaborated with Mother of Pearl for their new Autumn/Winter 2014 collection. Saja, a fine arts embroiderer known for his eccentric reappropriation of the toile, and creative director Amy Powney worked to skillfully combine Mother of Pearl’s pattern oriented styling with Saja’s quirky aesthetic.
The collection features a selection of bomber jackets, sweaters and shoes all accented with Saja’s delicate needlework. We caught up with Saja and he had this to say about the experience:
“I was pumped when I was asked to collaborate on the new collection by Mother of Pearl. The William Morris inspired prints seemed like both a challenge and a perfect fit. Rather than severely re-contextualize the print, I used the embroidery to play with color and texture and I’m wholly I’m pleased with the results…the line is completely historically inaccurate.”

Mother of Pearl has a history of collaborating with exceptional artist, Saja being the latest to join forces with the emerging art based fashion label.
