This season, Mother of Pearl has collaborated with London based artist duo Emma Biggs and Matthew Collings, drawing on artworks such as Commanded (2013) not only as a direct visual reference but also taking the geometric aesthetic and colour palette to form print and colour accents throughout the collection.

Known for their oil paintings about colour, light and perception, this husband and wife team create works such as ‘The Greater Light, 2012’ and ‘Commanded, 2013‘ using a mute, blank, intricate form, such as a series of triangles in a grid, not as an idea in itself, but as an inert container for colour. These works aim to examine what the world looks like if you take away familiar forms with their confusing narrative resonances, and substitute with a neutral, complex structure.
