Maitrepierre SS22 Algo-Archives is an invitation to retrospection.
one of the first inspiration of this collection is the robot Ai-dA. Human in Appearance and enriched with an algorithm that understands the entire History of Art, Ai-dA creates original work that draw randomly from its memory of historical archives. Her creations are an innovative proposal based solely on works of the past.
This new way of creating questions our practices, our jobs and our ways of thinking.
In A world increasingly digitalized and dematerialized, the reflection around the place of technology in our lives, pushed us to include it in our creative process. All the prints of the collection are the result of an algorithm created in collaboration with the programmer Adem Elahel, which generAteS random compressions of fabrics and materials.
This collection is a hybrid vision in its relationship to technology, but also in the reinterpretation of classic pieces: Tailleur Bar in sweatshirt fleeces, multi-patterned nighties cast in metal, pants and skirts in compression, draped like roman togas.
The future is a door, the past is the key.
The entire collection is produced in france and is part of a responsible proces. The pieces are made from recycled fibers, non-polluting inks, innovative materials or based on natural dye.
