Tell us what inspired you to create this collection.
I love to define my projects: Capsule Collection.
GRACE_ A tribute to Grace Jones and Grace Kelly, unique icons of their kind, women of character, like the women I turn to. A riot of beauty and unique volumes, clouds to wear for the part dedicated to Grace Jones who pays homage to the Divine with multicolors tulle dresses, skirts built in different layers, with ruchesess and gathered flounces, mounted on satin and lace bustiers, reduced constructions to the bare minimum, unstructured corsets and plays of transparencies create recognizable elements of my style.
Grace Kelly's elegance relives in the ostrich feathers and in the splendor of the palaces of Monte Carlo, dresses that are seen coming out of sumptuous receptions, the tulle with gold, the ostrich feathers, the stars embroidered on the tulle, adorned with wide sleeves and skirts with big bows are a tribute to Hollywood and to one of the brightest stars of all time.
MAIKO_ after the night the light. I wanted to dress my new muse with light.
The new capsule collection was elaborated with precious materials: damask, chiffon and tulle, I wanted to create a harmonious fusion of style and elegance in the architecture of the elements.
MAIKO it's Glamor. Ethereal, beautiful, she reaches Italy from distant worlds to wear these new garments as if they were a new, fluid and sensual skin that blends with structured elements of great character.
Yes, I worked as if to create unique works of art, like my muses are unique women, they travel the world, parade on redcarpets, participate in the most exclusive events where they are acclaimed, admired and loved.
How do you show your personality in these outfits?
Attention to detail, craftsmanship are the basis of all my work. My Projects evolve, they change, they grow, but they maintain the clear constructions of an architecture that reflects me, a great union is the link with the materials that must be light, from tulle to shantung even when they are as precious as damasks.
My origins, my experiences, my travels, my land, my defects, my strengths, I am ..... I am my capsules ....... my capsules are me.
How did your journey in the world of fashion begin?
With my grandmother, my mentor, the one who taught me the "job", she even before, she argued that to know how to "design" you need to "know how to do" and with her I started the first steps in this fantastic, fascinating world, , who welcomed me in his arms.
What will be your next collection?
I have many projects for a future, including unique works made with artist friends, our Casa di Moda MCT is a "forge" of the Arts, where Fashion and Alta Moda are at the center, the pivot, but a continuous mix with Painting, Cinema, Architecture, Design ……….... the ARTS
Another project will be the reuse of large PVCs made for architectural installations in Milan, of which I would like to give a new connotation and a new life.
Last but not least the new Capsulle ......... but now I do not reveal anything without anticipating only a ........... "WHITE"
