The Maiyet Pre-fall 2015 collection celebrates Emilie Floge captured through the lens of Malike Sibide.
Emilie Floge, best known as the muse of Gustav Klimt, was a fashion designer and business woman. She also had one of the largest textile and embroidery collections of her time. You can see her creative mix of print, pattern and texture in both Klimt’s paintings and photographs of her from the early 20th century.
Malike Sibide is a Malian photographer known for his black and white photography in the 60’s and 70’s. Thrown together in this collection, you get the contemporary attitude of Malike’s subjects combined with the soft yet eclectic print, pattern and embroidery expression of Emilie Floge.
This season’s silhouette is all about the shift – short shift, mid length shift, shift skirt, shift jumpsuit, shift sweater dress. This is complemented with a strong collection of knitwear, an ankle length wide leg pant and double breasted blazer.
