An avid sportswoman and fashion enthusiast, founder Maia Norman’s lifestyle and surroundings have heavily influenced the brand ethos and direction of Mother of Pearl. Norman has always had a strong connection with the art world and each season, Mother of Pearl works with an acclaimed artist. Previous collaborators include Polly Morgan, Francesco Simeti, Gary Hume, Fred Tomaselli, Fiona Banner, Keith Tyson, Jim Lambie, Matt Collishaw and Carsten Holler.
Since starting as Creative Director, Amy Powney has streamlined the Mother of Pearl aesthetic using the artists’ work as first hand research and utilising them to feature cleverly as prints within the collection.
Powney ensures that the collection’s colour-way sits perfectly with the selected artworks and that the silhouettes and detailing stay true to the sports luxe aesthetic with which the Mother of Pearl label is synonymous. Fusing their signature sportswear inspired aesthetic with luxury fabrics, Mother of Pearl’s coveted pieces have gained a global cult following.
