Maaike recently released their new Autumn/Winter 2019 collection in stores and online and it features two stunning exclusive prints. Called Partitions, the range is full of Maaike’s signature relaxed silhouettes with easy to wear dresses, flowing tops, roomy jumpers and tapered pants among their new pieces. Designers Emilie Pullar and Abby van Schreven are known for their creative, contemporary style with versatile pieces that push boundaries and redefine modern dressing.
The brand excel at collaborating on fresh, exclusive prints each season and for this collection they’re created two new eye-catching prints. The first of which is the Prism print which was inspired by an exhibition the designers saw in L.A. by German artist Christiane Feser, who utilises photographic techniques to experiment with photography as a representation of reality. The result is a clever black and white print that produces mini optical-illusions and features on key pieces within the range.
While the designers loved the Prism print they also wanted to create a more colourful print for this range while retaining the link to their initial artistic inspiration. They partnered with graphic designer Jessica Moore who painted two multi-media images for this design by dripping acrylic paint, pastels, pencils, spray paint and other materials onto board. The vivid artworks were then scanned and printed to create the beautiful Ink print in hues of purple, burgundy and blue. It’s already gotten quite a bit of attention with singer Lily Allen recently wearing the Paper Dress during her recent trip to New Zealand. Maaike definitely have all the right looks this season.
