MISIA PARIS 2022 COLLECTION: Terre Des Ocres
Dawn rises over the fiery cliffs of Luberon, sweeping over the palette of ochre, sienna, and umber.
MISIA pursues the geology of the Provencal Colorado and its backdrop of flamboyant colours. Provence has always been the home of artists : thus an impressionist landscape is pinned to the lengths of textured velvet, whilst, on a silk a succession of artists take their turn to leave brush strokes of genius. Cozy bouclés and diaphanous satins come together at the crossroads of the exquisite and the delicate, and fancy, metallic yarns lift the weaves of natural fibres, making them undisputedly modern….
At the meeting point of elegance and luxury comes “Rustrel”, a soft and textured looped jacquard velvet. Its natural cotton and viscose fibres come together to create a lustrous and matte luxuriance. The looped technique in the warp and the different colors of the weft create variations in height and texture adding to the effect of depth in the pattern of broken lines. Available in five colours, for unique and contemporary seating and other accessories. (Top, Left)
On this soft jacquard velvet, four colors of yarn create an impressionist landscape, which seems to be stretched to the limits of our gaze. The alternating horizontal stripes, with a sometimes fluffy and indistinct, sometimes cut and clean texture, is the result of the cut and uncut looped technique. The colours in the range, Umber, Eternal Blue, Greige and Burnt Orange blend like a single stroke in the panorama of this collection, inspired by the Provencal Colorado. “Pigments de Peinture” is ideal for heavy-duty seating to meet the requirements of professional clients.

Terre Des Ocres velvets are available in a large range of colors, with “Au Mont des Muses”; a luxurious velvet jacquard in viscose and cotton, with a mirror-finish and an exceptional touch. The appearance of double density and the varying heights of the pile give it a subtle and deceptively disheveled vintage look : a fabric as exquisite as it is timeless, both in time. With its high Martindale and suitable for intensive use curtains and seating, it is ideal for a demanding professional clientele. MISIA’s concern for the environment is permanent and the machines used for the production of this Italian fabric function with solar power. (Above, Right)
This launch includes two distinctive pattern designs to spearhead the artistic collection: PALETTE DE ARTISTES (M298) with it’s large jacquard pattern revealing a colorful, complex pattern, like those created by the brush-strokes of surrealist or cubist artists. (Below, Left)
As well as MAGIE DES OCRIERS (M301); with its ridged motif, you can almost see the red cliffs of the Provencal Colorado. The embroidery with its blurred edges, recalls the wool and short curls, which, when paired with linen, gives this fabric a beautiful natural and matte finish. (Below, Right)
Different plains, add collective calm to the collection with styles such as the 100% linen ZEPHIR (M316) and MÉDITERRANÉE (M321). L’AUTAN (M319); an Italian made open-work voile and L’AURORE (M317), a jacquard voile with a metallic finish which has a subtle and discreet shimmer – but never completely unnoticed.
IN & OUTDOOR COLLECTION
Bouclés, elegant stripes, cane work inspired textures, small and large designs have their place on a sun-lounger, next to a pool. The high resistance to chlorinated or sea water, colour fastness, and hardwearing qualities against weather or wear do not detract from the visual or tactile experience of these fabrics, where contemporary elegance and technical performance are united, to allow an exacting clientele to combine In & Outdoor spaces throughout the year.
MISIA x ALISON ROSE
Alison Rose is inspired by the linear fashions from the start of 20th century fashion. When the lines and curves come together, an unexpected graphic event is created, resulting in an entrancing imbalance. This is how the EUPHORIE CUBISTE (M308, Below) motif was constructed, allowing geometric contrasts interacting harmoniously.
In the design of this drawing, Alison Rose cultivates, as in all her work, a real connection between the object and its user. A desire to explore the concepts of space and proportions, with the objective of magnifying the impact of interior decoration.
