Anticipating the year’s warmest months, the Matiere 2017 “Dead Sea” collection is filled with casual essentials to help you journey in style. Inspired by San Francisco and founder Scot Shandalove’s experience following the Grateful Dead on tour, the brand’s latest lookbook was photographed off the shores of the Golden Gate Bridge. Matiere’s name derives from the word meaning “material” in French, and the brand has become known for the luxurious knits and technical fabrics it develops in its LA-based design lab. This season follows suit with the brand’s vision. Despite the line’s cool color palette and air of relaxation, Matiere remained meticulous with its fabrics and treatments, opting to use processes like pigment spraying, overdying and enzyme washing to achieve a contemporary look that nods to ’80s tie-dye. The brand also looked for functional updates to summer essentials, evidenced by details like cargo pockets and drawstring hems on weathered indigo pants and jackets constructed from waterproof Japanese nylon.
