Misericordia Movies

  1. This day, Aurelyen was in the area around the fishing port to take picture of birds whirling in the sky, above fishermen, selling their catch on makeshift tables in Lima.

    These photos will be serving for drawings and prints of the fourth collaboration with Kris Van Assche. Find it on http://www.misionmisericordia.com

    It is there, along the beach, that Aurelyen saw a young guy hitting violently a ball with its tennis racket, like full of a rage to evacuate. Aurelyen has seen his reflection in this furious energy but above all the reflection of its project. Misericordia carries the message of a hope, a strong willpower to give everything to succeed and achieve one's dream.

    Aurelyen wanted to immortalize this man, who personifies the need that we all have, to release the pressure, sometimes in an absurd and useless way as this choreographic exutory of a man hitting a ball. This player fights for his hopes between sun, sea and sand. Misericordia tells the story of real people, who believe in their dreams, grabbing with strength at their environment.

  2. Misericordia under flames…

    What could be more expressive than this video displaying simple things but transmiting so much of the message that Misericordia wants to share. It plays tee-shirts of the new collection (http://www.misionmisericordia.com) disappearing bit by bit under flames.

    The scene has been played at the workshop « La Cabana de Alta Costura » assisted by Wilfredo, Juan Carlos and Naiman, holding extinguishers to avoid incident and keeping a careful eye on the fruits of their labor. This artistic expression would like to show that Misericordia is a laboratory of creation where everyone, sewer, lights operator and assistant, can take part into the process and let speak his fantasy in the construction of a dreamlike and beautiful thing.

    This video is the own way of Misericordia to show that the brand creates aesthetic and long-lasting clothes, pieces which are going to live and grow with their buyers but will unavoidably end up to wear done, and one day or another are going to pass away.
    Regardless, Misericordia hopes that the message will survive them, that they will continue to carry the message of those men that imagined, created and wore them, of those feelings they had, this joy that made them live and these grieves they went through.

    Finally, this video is not that simple. In an instant it tells the vision of a writer, an artist, a story teller, a director, who try to explain that it is a creative project we share from Lima-Peru, a project closed to elements and life, sometimes burning and violent but always rich of emotions and sensations.

  3. This video displays the swarming and decadent activity of Lima, like a night club with uncontrollable lights and energy.

    The capital of Peru goes ahead quickly and does not stop to welcome many artists, comedians, authors, directors dazzled by this exciting city hiding a thousand of wonders. The idea of this scene is to show that Lima is really a capital of contemporary creation inspiring all those thinkers and designers, who try to transmit a different and right thought of the city, far from traditional and folk, even wild sometimes, image that people imagine.

    Radiant new thought of Lima is avant-gardist, it tries to feed world with a weaving of reflections and sharing from Latin America.

    Misericordia is a main project of Latin America, a former one that successes in making this too often isolated world emerge to reach international level. It is a prestigious project that measures itself without pretention to the highest and most famous around the world. Mixing art, social involvement, philosophy and fashion, it tells the story of a modern community that takes head-on contemporary society and launches itself in today’s world.

    Misericordia is an avant-gardist project. The brand would like to show to everyone the heart of a city that beats; eyes of its people that take an attentive and careful look at the evolution of the world and the body of this nation that moves to the rhythm of the life around. This richness and this consciousness of things, the brand has immediately seen it and try every day to share it with most of the people.

    Misericordia is a project that takes risks, that is not afraid to go out from its comfort to play with the biggest one. It is a project that talk to everybody and whose main ambition is to integrate and make people who often feel neglected take part into development of a dream and a same passion.

Misericordia is the first Peruvian brand of clothing present on the international fashion scene. The clothes are ethically produced in the Misericordia workshop in Lima by our own team of seamstresses with a unique know-how. Misericordia is a project combining avant-garde artistic and social commitment, with a selective distribution in over 100 prestigious concept stores worldwide. In 2008, Misericordia opened its online store: http://www.misionmisericordia.com and 2009, its first shop in Lima.

Misericordia is a team of seamstresses who have been working with their hands, spirit and heart since 2002 in Lima - Peru. The hope and the will are within us. To live means to fight. We sew to learn and to discover another World. No longer Utopia. The Misericordia collection tells our lives and the aventure of Aurelyen, the designer, across Peru and Latin America. Here, in this unpredictable continent, learning is a metamorphosis that is communicated in our creations.

Misericordia clothes are beautiful because they are made by a young team originating from the shanty towns, with authentic values and human emotions: joy, fear, courage, passion… We work by craftsmen and our efforts are immense to make every garment. It is a conquest process of pride and pleasure.

Misericordia clothes are exclusively made with the most beautiful materials and organic cotton from Peru. Misericordia chooses scrupulously each of the raw materials to develop unique clothes with the highest quality, to represent the wealth of Peru.

The adventure started in 2002 at Zapallal in the Northern suburbs of Lima. In 2006, Misericordia’s team follows its metamorphosis in the middle of capital, in the district of Lince. We are all together in a full space which gathers the laboratory of creation and the production studio: La Cabaña de Alta Costura Misericordia. Since 2008, Misericordia manufactures each season in his workshop, a special line for Kris Van Assche, the designer of Dior Homme, built around Aurelyen’s drawings, the creator of the Misericordia.
