Éléments Terre brings together fabrics that are typified by a rhythmic sense of movement. Its patterns seem to pulsate, echoing the constant evolution of the natural world. Others display a nebulous fluidity, while some shine with the profusion of their botanical patterns. The new collection encapsulates Métaphores fundamentals: the rigorous selection of natural fibres enhanced by refined finishing, as well as a string belief in sustainability.

Its two heritage lines are also represented in Éléments Terre: the traditionnal Lyon-based silk manufacturer Verel de Belval, and Le Crin, which boasts the only workshop in the world where horsehair is woven by hand. Both embody the house’s commitment to fine craftsmanship, and its focus on excellence that  pervades all its creations. The know-how of times past is given a novel twist to produce textiles that are thoroughlty of today.

And for the first time, a selection of fire-retardant contract fabrics has been incorporated into the main collection. They are at once resistant, washable and supple in a way that makes it difficult to distinguish them from the rest of the line.
