Founder Maia Norman’s lifestyle and surroundings have heavily influenced the brand ethos and direction of Mother of Pearl. Norman has always had a strong connection with the art world and each season, Mother of Pearl works with an acclaimed artist. Previous collaborators include Polly Morgan, Francesco Simeti, Gary Hume, Fred Tomaselli, Fiona Banner, Keith Tyson, Jim Lambie, Matt Collishaw and Carsten Holler.
Since starting as Creative Director in 2010, Amy Powney has streamlined the Mother of Pearl aesthetic. Each season Powney works closely with the collaborating artist using their works as a springboard to create the prints of the collection and continues to develop the sport-luxe DNA of the brand. Expanding beyond the main collections, Mother of Pearl have also produced one off special collaborations with the likes of Polly Morgan, SHOWstudio, Garage Magazine, John Currin, Harrods and Other Criteria.
