Conceptualized with a fascination for premium materials, Matiere, launched textile/tactile-focused fashion in 2013 with the collaborated efforts of Scot Shandalove and Jake Zeitlin. Motivated by an urge to combine innovative fabrics with modern silhouettes, Matiere looks to consistently evolve and push the boundaries of fabrication, while always maintaining a clean, understated, and refined point of view. Matiere has drawn inspiration from Japanese conceptual minimalism, American workwear and upgraded street style silhouettes. The brand’s latest collection is the embodiment of the designers’ fascination with premium, state-of-the-art fabrics with origins across many continents – all materials used in Matiere’s collections are developed by and for Matiere exclusively.
