Maiyet F/W 2012

I am going to be honest; I wasn’t super familiar with Maiyet before this post.  Yes, I had checked out the previous collection (which also happened to be the label’s first), but that was it.  But I decided to branch out while checking out the Paris Fashion Week shows…

I did a little digging and I was super excited to discover that Maiyet is more than your average label.  Paul van Zyl and Kristy Caylor, the individuals behind the label, travelled the world scouting for unique and beautiful artisanal crafts.  They then work with the artisans to employ their skill in the designs.  Creating an opportunity to maximize prosperity from these crafts.  (Read more about it HERE)

Pretty cool, right?

Check out some of my favorite pieces from Maiyet F/W 2012 Collection:

  1. That last dress is so sensual, flirty and sophisticated all wrapped in one, some how. Neat collection.

  2. oo la la – je l’adore! I could totally wear look #1 and #4 :-)

  3. these are gorgeous = love these looks + thanks for the intro!!

  4. These are jaw droppingly amazing! I want all of them!!

  5. i’m glad that at least one more label is around promoting fair trade and all the things that were all the rage six years ago, especially in a season where being ‘green’ could not be more not on trend and i was happy to see that they made it for another season. it’s one of the things about the fashion industry that’s so disappointing to me–that trying to do good things in the world is treated like a fad and not a way of life.

  6. I’ve never heard of Maiyet before but I love what I’m seeing here!!

  7. None of them are for me. Not my taste, even when I was younger! But wonderful for those of you who love this style. Different strokes for different folks :)

  8. Excellent designs, I admired this collection, and so happy that you did more on PFW, sometimes it gets a bit lost in blogland. There were many creations that I loved at PFW. The third and fourth styles from Maiyet are my favourite.

  9. Ahhh, love that dress in the first picture… and the jacket to boot.

  10. That LBD is delish!

  11. I like most of them. think my husband would like the last one.

  12. Thanks for the intro. I’m loving this collection. Very sexy!

  13. Gorgeous….I am in love with look #3.

  14. I especially like the jackets in numbers 1 and 3!

  15. Wow! That first look is just stunning. I love it. I think I would feel like I was wrapped up in the night sky!

  16. Love the long sweater over the flirty skirt

  17. Oooh I like how they get their inspiration!
