more maiyet


I told you they made amazing pieces.  Just look at the bad-ass beauty of this coat.  Super structured but still elegant and feminine, it's made of wool and cashmere and lined with handwoven silk.  Perfection.  And these pony oxfords are killing me as well:


More from Maiyet (much of it on sale) and a sneak peek at their pre-fall 2013 collection...


The lines are all very clean and simple, with the occasional unexpected detail to keep you on your toes.  And in addition to the amazing company philosophy, what really draws me in are their materials and fabrics.  That pony hair makes me want to dive right into it, the t-shirts, turtlenecks and dresses are all 100% silk, and the coats and pants are wool/cashmere blend with handwoven silk lining.  Luxurious much?  Yeah, I think it's safe to use that word here.

Here's a peek at what they have in store for us next (head over here for larger images):


Simple, impeccable, ethical, aspirational.  Those shapes!  That color palette!  It's official, I'm a fan.

  1. Now that's strange - the styling is much more structured than I anticipated. I expected something much softer and more natural following the videos previously. That's not to say that I don't like the clothes - it's just not what I expected. The first coat is a little Yohji Yamamoto? And the colour palette is something which I would expect from COS which is one of your favourites shops which is why I can understand why you love this collection. Infact, I can see COS doing a slightly pared down version of the clothes for autumn/winter. However, I love the plum coat with the contrast sleeves. Just a wonderful shade, shape and colour. Oh to be able to wear it and not look like a Ribena berry ;o)

    1. Well, at least I'm consistent! Ha! It does seem that they had more lightweight and drapey silks in the last collection, and the pre-fall seems to be much more structured, I think it's great that they have such a range. Oh and just so you know, I had to google ribena berry. Seriously, I learn so much from you! Cracked me up once I saw the little cartoons pop up in google images. I'm fairly sure you wouldn't look anything like that in that coat.

    2. That makes me laugh a lot actually - you googling the things I write some times. I don't even know I'm doing it that's the thing. I just assume people know what a Ribena berry looks like. Don't you have Ribena there?

    3. Yeah, it cracks me up too. You are one of my most educational cyberfriends, if only due to the fact that I have no idea what you're saying half the time! Ha! (I mean that with love.) As far as I can tell from googling, Ribena is a non-carbonated drink over there? Made from blackcurrants? You can find blackcurrants in the states I think, but as far as I know it's not very common. Regular currants more so? Now you're making me doubt my basic berry knowledge... And as for where I live now, please, spaniards don't even seem to distinguish between blueberries and cranberries, far as I can tell!

  2. I like everything except for the price. Well, the story of my life...

  4. Hadn't heard of this line, but I love the overall aesthetic. Thanks for the intro. That cocoon coat in 'blackberry' is awfully nice... but those prices are really high!

    1. I know, those prices are extremely high, even when they're deeply discounted. I suppose that's because you're paying for the aesthetic, the design, the execution, the materials, and the brand ethos, which is not a cheap one. Out of my budget range for sure as well, but still good eye candy.

    1. Ugh, I know, right? Sadly (or luckily, for our pockets) not available anymore. Sigh.
