The Spring Summer 2016 Collection is a celebration of the Maiyet girl’s journey, her wanderlust, her limitless imagination and her informed refusal to accept the status quo. It draws particular inspiration from the boundless spirit of female explorers who played a significant role in shaping both their futures and our present, paying particular homage to Amelia Earhart’s record-breaking flights, as well as NASA’s unsung heroes of space exploration such as Katherine Johnson. The seemingly barren landscapes of the Mongolian desert and the weathered rock formations of Arizona’s Antelope Canyon provide the color palette and texture for SS16.
This collection acknowledges the Arc of Human Endeavor that has seen us through 20th Century advancements and into our 21st Century world. It embraces today’s New York woman; her demanding lifestyle, her natural curiosity and most importantly, her quest to step beyond defined limits and improve the world.
