Designer love // Maydi SS16
It has been 2 years and 3 months since my last post. I have been very very bad at blogging. I even put down my knitting needles for a full year. Lately, I have had a burst of energy and I have decided to bring back this blog I enjoyed writing so much for many years.
Knitting and crochet have gone so quickly from uncool to VERY trendy. Everyone is finally realizing how beautiful and versatile these two can be and integrating them into their collections. Tommy Hilfigher’s Ready-to-wear Spring 2016 collection, for example, is made almost entirely of crochet pieces (That will be for another post).
Today we will be admiring the amazing work of Maydi’s SS16 collection. According to their website, Maydi is a line of hand-knit pieces constructed from natural fibers and organic yarns. The brand merges contemporary aesthetics with a focus on sustainability and human capital, the timeless garments are made with an artisanal dedication and unwavering attention to detail.
What amazes me about their garment is the simplicity. The filet is the most simple design one can think of in crochet and yet she manages to make it something magical in the SS16 collection. I am not a big fan of the past collections but this one truly does it for me. Magnifique!
