Matière Noire is a Paris-based creative studio leading new approaches to spacial design. Built on a network of parallel disciplines, our operation cultivates ambivalence, using observational methods to ground its intuitive impulses. Matière Noire is driven by an appetite for the undefined, the hypothetical, the intangible. Its process celebrates unexpected derivations, developing them into bespoke applications of cross-cultural collaboration.

Miaou’s SS’23 runway presentation uses light as an active protagonist of the show’s scenography. A steady-cam operator tracks each models’ movement as they circle around Toile-de-Jouy daybeds set against a towering dome of mirror-panelled walls. Twisting the dynamics of traditional runways, this fast-paced framework is a playful reflection on the immediate nature of fashion that draws the audience in its fleeting stride.
