Maiyet Spring 2012

On Sunday I discovered a new brand: Maiyet.

The debut Spring 2012 presentation was attended by all the top editors from Vogue, The Times, Marie Claire and Elle, so I was excited that I was going to be seeing something very special.

Maiyet marries old-world traditions with new-world luxury to create a collection that is sophisticated, modern and minimalist in spirit.

The luxury line sources artisans from developing countries in order to promote self-sufficiency.

We saw an urban collection of khaki trench coats with embellished details, high-waisted shorts, sari-style cropped blouses, silk maxi dresses, short sets, chic blazers paired with a flounced skirt, maxi skirts and loose-fitting pants.

Key accessories included double wrap belts, hand-sculpted jewellery, wristlet clutches, shoulder bags, totes, and strappy sandals, wedges and flats which were paired with socks.

Favourites: handloom jamdani cuff shorts and top and hand embroidered linen dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Liv Tyler, Julianne Moore, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Thandie Newton and Kate Beckinsale

    i love the clothes, but i hate the styling with the socks. The looks could have been so much more classy without them. Great discovery though.
