Introducing the new guy on the block, Edwige Pierre. This menswear brand has launched its second collection titled, Intermezzo for your sartorial pleasure. The driver behind the brand is NYC based Joshua Washington. After receiving his masters from Polimoda in Florence, Italy, Mr.Washington created his brainchild, named after his late grandmother Edwige.
The references for each garment can be traced back to his days living in Europe while traveling all over the world. Intermezzo takes us back to the Vienna Sucession movement. This period was a thriving time for Austrian painters, architects, and sculptors. We had the opportunity to be on location during the lookbook shoot at Internum, one of Houston's premier home decor boutiques. The usage of various structural elements within the lookbook serve as a representation of the infamous Gustav Klimt, the leader of the movement whose claim to fame was tied to his supreme skill as a decorator.
The term Intermezzo was coined from Joshua's believe that his collections are interludes or preludes of the ideation process of his mental. As a budding designer we cannot wait to see where his creative thoughts continue to lead him.
We got the opportunity to ask Joshua what his definition of a composer is and does he think that he's one is his own right.
"A composer is someone or something that can unify multiple elements to create a unique experience. I do believe I am one to some extent, but I'm still learning."
