Back in 2003, Aurelyen, then a young French artist, travels the world in search of artistic inspirations and decides to move to Peru. In the slums of Lima, he meets a small team of sewers and initiates with them a revolutionary project that combines artistic creation and social commitment. The success of Misericordia on the international stage is immediate. Over the years, our studio grows and becomes La Cabaña de Alta Costura Misericordia, a vast laboratory of creation and production in which a team of 40 people manufactures with passion the Misericordia collections.
Aurelyen, who lives halfway between France and Peru, is now a recognized designer. He designs all the collections, mixing the strong tendencies of the season with chic and timeless basics. Misericordia’s wardrobe focuses on fetish pieces punctuated with the desires of the moment. Sophistication and comfort are the hallmarks of our style. We choose each raw material through a local sourcing enabling us to develop high quality garments and help stimulate the country economy. That is why Tanguïs and Pima cottons, Modal,baby alpaca or organic cotton are Misericordia’s lighthouses materials.
Misericordia is also a project with a strong artistic dimension combining drawing, photography, cinema,design, poetry, music and travel. Our mission is to promote the Latin American art scene through our collections, our campaigns and films. We regularly work with leading names in fashion, art and design, with whom we share the same vision: Kris Van Assche, Bernard Willhem, Lutz, Stephan Schneider, the designer matali crasset, ABICI or the eyewear manufacturer Waiting For The Sun.
Misericordia collections are sold alongside the best international designers in over 120 prestigious shops worldwide: Le Bon Marche, Colette, Le 66 Champs Elysees, Harvey Nichols, Isetan ...
