Maria Francesca Pepe’s AW14 collection celebrates ‘life, love and soul’ creating a colourful, cool and inspiring collection that explores the aesthetics of Pop Art, Basquiat’s graffiti art, street style and sub-urban cultures. The fusion of Tracy Emin’s passionate, neon installations and Walt Whitman’s moving poetry also inspire the imagery of their exceptionally playful editorial look book, which showcases the new MFP range of jewellery.
The collection features a wider selection of colours, textures and techniques. Fluorescent tones of neon limes, pop fuchsias and deep purples engraved within the enamel scribbles and concrete patterns elevate the graphic and youthful designs.
This season, they have also collaborated with the London-based knitwear brand WOOL AND THE GANG. In which their collection uses their ‘super badass beanies’ to embellish their own statement brooches, including WEST and EAST coast hand gestures, in addition to the more delicate and feminine headbands embroidered with ruby Swarovski hearts and gold studs.
The ‘soulful beats’ that surround MFP’s electric collection toy with aesthetics recognisable within the art scene. It really is a marriage made of perfection in MFP marrying Basquiat’s graffiti art to their signature street-edge jewellery. Which makes this collection and the MFP brand not only enjoyable, but also a true trendsetter of a new Avant-Garde jewellery which synthesises the symbols of youth, art and fashion under one collection.
