Matrix Artistic Director Chrystofer Benson created this high-fashion color collection drawing inspiration from the color-motion picture process invented in 1916 known as “Technicolor,” celebrated for its saturated levels of color and finishes to the films.

“I took an old school idea of color with a modern, high-fashion approach of where the color and shine hits,” Benson says, who used Matrix Logics for this collection.

“This is a story all about strong color saturation to enhance the strong cuts.”
