Muses by Psophía

A project with which we suggest different artists to express their personal vision of our firm.
Our garments mark the feminine silhouette but, at the same time, play with volumes and architecture.
Musas is an initiative in which, throughout our collections, various artists and artisans will be invited to interpret different Psophía pieces from their own vision.

To Andrea Zarraluqui, painter of porcelain plates, and to Paloma Vázquez de Castro,
creative director and founding partner of Psophía, they have many things in common;
one of them, his love for plants, flowers and gardens, the starting point of so many inspirations. How could we not propose a collaboration within the Muses action?
Musas is the initiative through which Psophía seeks the creative contribution of artists and artisans. It has already done so in the fall-winter collection with Carolina Spencer (Matagalan plantae).
This time, the result is Orientalis . If Andrea Zarraluqui usually uses porcelain plates as a canvas, in Orientalis she changes these for one of Psophía's iconic pieces: the caftan.

André Leon Talley, chronicler of social life, style icon in his own right and great user of caftans, defines them as "a simple way of being in life". The theatrical effect caused by the drape of the garment and its ability to adapt At all heights and hips they have seduced other names in the world of fashion and entertainment.
Diana Vreeland, legendary director of Vogue USA, dedicated a series of articles about the caftan in the magazine, promoting its emergence into the haute couture scene of the 1960s. Couturiers such as Dior, Balenciaga and Saint Laurent accepted the challenge, as well as Tom Ford more recently. Movie stars, from Elizabeth Taylor to Uma Thurman, have walked it on the covers of magazines and the red carpets of Hollywood and Cannes.

Gone are the times when the caftan was an eccentricity typical of travelers nostalgic for the Mesopotamian origins of the garment, its spread by the Persians and the use made of it by the Caesars of the Roman Empire, the monks of Bhutan, the Ottoman sultans. and the indigenous tribes of North Africa.
The caftan is an eternal piece, as eternal is the promise of love and friendship that symbolizes the honeysuckle or lonicera, a floral species with ornamental, medicinal and environmental care properties, faithfully represented by the brushes of Andrea Zarraluqui in Orientalis , his collaboration with Psophía

Psophía by Matagalán

Carolina Spencer, founder of Matagalan Plantae, has been in charge of making the first delivery of the project.

Carolina's world is filled with plants, natural light, the vessels she designed herself, and the sketches that fill her studio.
"Plantis Poetica" is the result of recreating flowers and garments in perfect harmony. Following the invitation, the artist proposed three scenarios for their collaboration, each with its own narrative but with a common thread that plays with textures, colors and the volumes.
In them, clothing and plants dialogue in a suggestive and elegant way.

This setting evokes the earth and autumn.

Roots, branches and clothes forming background and figure, like an abstract painting.

In this scenario the beauty of the volumes, padding and bows is shown.
Next to it, ikebana compositions on ceramic pieces


In this scenario, plant elements are mixed with prints.
In these compositions where the vegetal and the graphic are confused,
The image achieves a subtle trompe-l'oeil effect.
