The Mother of Pearl Spring/Summer 2013 collection is a collaboration between the British clothing company and artist Francesco Simeti from Italy.

Mother of Pearl is known for incorporating art influences into its wardrobe. Simeti was given the freedom to see the silk blouses and tailored as a willing canvas waiting for him to cover it with forested landscapes and woodland creatures. Pieces range from eccentric voluminous cropped blazers that you could easily place in a frame and hang on your wall to streamlined dresses, cinching at the waist and displaying the images of trees and morning sparrows.

The beauty of the Mother of Pearl Spring/Summer 2013 collection is in the way that ruffles are perceived, which are clearly seen on the hems of the skirts and dresses.
