Marcia Patmos, designer of the aptly named M. Patmos line has been making a name for herself as an innovator in luxurious sustainable and environmentally friendly fashion. This versatile, effortless collection was created using methods such as high-tech, zero-waste, whole-garment knitting, producing garments in the United States from locally stocked yarn, and hand knits styles from female artisans in Bolivia and Nepal. Patmos was inspired by the work of contemporary artist Mary Judge and the book The Birth Of Cool: California Art, Design, and Culture at Midcentury, explaining further “I combined the tactile look of mid-century craft design with motifs from Judge’s cement sculptures to create modern and compelling pieces.”
This adaptable and elegant collection is focused on modernity. The casual looks consist of accessible slip dresses and sheaths, slouchy knits, and menswear inspired trousers, cigarette pants, and shorts in pale neutral colors, accented with shimmering silver metallics and shots of citron, gold and blue for color.
