The SUT'ANA collection is Péan's second line inspired by her recent travels to Peru. The collection is a natural follow up from the INTI Collection, which was inspired by the vibrant color and striking architecture found in the Andes region. In SUT'ANA, a derivation of the words "black" and "blue" in Incan dialect, Péan shifts her focus to the thriving artistic culture within modern-day Peru.
"During my trip to Peru, I not only visited the amazing Nazca Lines and Macchu Picchu, but also spent time exploring the markets, tasting the food and embracing local traditions throughout the country. I was particularly struck by the dynamic color and modern sense of planar design that saturate the city of Cuzco," Péan comments.
In this collection, the designer references the angular patterns and bold contrasting primary colors found in Peruvian textiles. She pairs her signature fossilized woolly mammoth ivory and fossilized walrus ivory with vivid blue opalina, amber straw topaz and citrine, natural brown agate, black jade and fossilized jet. While the collection alludes to Péan's personal travels to a specific region of the world, the intense color and geometric precision present throughout the collection resonate with graphic composition and disparate color blocking prevalent in the abstract modern art movements.
