Where PLÛS stands for:
- another collection
- an additional artisanal value
- a new approach for an original capsule collection from the Masnada company
- a new addition to Tiffany Treloar
When I was in Paris recently, wandering down a typical Parisian side street, I was drawn into the Masnada showroom by the colour and fabrics. Rarely, if ever, had I seen such exquisite artistry in textile designs - this was a red-hot gem of a find! No doubt, you too will appreciate the quality and hand-finishing of the Masnada Plus selection, now available in the Flinders Lane Store and online.
Each item is slightly different being a product of a hand treated procedure executed by a team of skilled artists/artisans and accordingly numbered individually.
This decorative process is inspired by (art’s processes like) Fresco, Graffiti, Acrylics, Hatsuboku, water painting, Ombré, Gold leaf and Resist-dyeing techniques. The surface decoration ranges from barely there tonal shadings to distinctive patterns in rich colour ways.
To complete, lightweight silk chiffon undergoes the same decorative process to coordinate for simple accessory inspired apparel.
Each individual garment is embellished in a semi artisan process, executed by a team of skilled artists inspired by the world of contemporary art.
We think you'll say "WOW"!
