Mozhdeh Matin's slow luxury fashion brand, Mozh Mozh, works with female artisans in Native Peruvian villages using local textiles (like alpaca) and innovative and traditional techniques to conserve Peru's historical indigenous fashion. The result: Mozh Mozh's colorful and timeless collection that brings a queer sensibility to reinterpreting the ancestral textiles of Peru.
Their new Spring/Summer 2020 collection features fusion of handwoven cotton fabrics, crochet knots, and beaded accessories for the "new '20s" (inspired by Fritz Lang's Metropolis). Also drawing inspiration from the Peruvian poet and plastic artist Jorge Eduardo Eielson, Matin incorporated elements of South America's Andes Mountain Range, creating structural garments and bags inspired by Eielson's "Nudos" sculptures.
I love the Maska Multi Dress, a handwoven open back dress that steps up the rainbow fashion game for any femme. The equally fabulous but slightly more gender-neutral Ribbon Loom Roca Shirt and matching Fela Trousers are paired here with the brand's Beaded Rain Dress.
