An embellished life

For Pierre Marie Agin, known simply as Pierre Marie, embellishment is a way of life. At only 19, his drawings covered limited edition t-shirt collections for Agnès b. The Paris-based designer went on to adorn surfaces for a range of iconic fashion brands, including Sonia Rykiel and Issey Miyake. His whimsical series of scarves for Hermès in 2008 led to a prolific collaboration. In 2015, he decided to focus on interior design: “It started when I moved into a bigger flat; I wanted to decorate it myself and create an immersive experience,” he remembers. A self-described 'ornamentalist', he considers it his mission to revive interest in the decorative arts, which he feels have been neglected for the last five decades. In 2018, he established his own gallery in Paris, showcasing his first tapestry, Ras El Hanout, a lively cocktail of botanical motifs produced in collaboration with the artisan Robert Four.
