COLLECTION INSPIRATION: With the Autumn Winter 16 collection Maiyet celebrates the individual. AW16 was strongly influenced by both the spring campaign and the photography, architecture, and designs of Carlo Mollino.
Both the campaign and the spirit of Mollino are reflections exploring the relationship between the two; the provocative nature of self and the intimate nature of home.
Carlo Mollino has been described by many as dark and irresistible; as elegant, obsessive, and more than a little seductive. This collection takes those influences and infuses them with a playful confidence that propels the Maiyet woman to a place of both sensuality and intimacy.
The color palette is informed by the contrast between the interiors of John Lautner and Mollino and helps to highlight the unique sense of home we all share. The silhouettes in FW16 are a study in mid-century couture fused with a modern, voyeuristic hedonism.
