PFW A/W 2014

MAIYET Paris, France: Drawing inspiration from Frida Kahlo’s strong, sensuous, and unflinching selfportraits, Kristy Caylor of Maiyet presented a collection she called “A Look Inside” on March 1 during Paris Fashion Week AW 2014. Just as Kahlo looked inside herself to create her selfportraits, Caylor looked inside the creative process by using a graphic pattern based on the punch cards used to create hand-woven jacquard patterns. She further extended the “looking inside” idea with pieces that incorporated sheer fabrics or very deep U-necks. Reflecting Kahlo’s blend of sensitivity and strength, Caylor presented both sleek, body conscious feminine pieces and as well as jackets and trousers, some showing a strong menswear influence. And in keeping with the brand’s emphasis on supporting artisanal craftsmanship, the designer used hand-knit and hand-woven linen and silk, handembroidered embellishments, and handmade earrings and rings.
