A century of patterns, testimony to a forgotten heritage.
It was in the vicinity of Lyon, in 2013, that Emmanuel Foyatier made his first trip back in time, to the textile printing factory of his ancestor, Martin Morel. This factory, which he has known abandoned since his childhood, conceals a real treasure: thousands of archives, from 1896 to 1980, hundreds of patterns, all reflections of an era, were just waiting to be revealed in broad daylight. Emmanuel needed no more to revive these prints and imagine a brand at the crossroads of two eras, a meeting between past and present: Maison Martin Morel.
"1896-Pasté Contemporain is a promise, that of a more beautiful, more elegant, more sensitive future. The start of another story "
Current cuts adorned with vintage patterns, redesigned by the talented Lily Alcaraz and Léa Berlier, come to life in this industrial setting. From this heritage are born elegant and innovative collections, reflecting the daring and timeless woman, the Maison Martin Morel woman.
“Maison Martin Morel's patterns impress textiles as well as our minds. "
With its very contemporary lines, the garment becomes a bridge between a bygone era and the present. Each motif has its own era, name, spirit. The journey can then begin. Welcome to the world of Maison Martin Morel.
