Get into the FLOW with MAYN's new minimalistic & edgy SS16 collection
FLOW is inspired bij Yuanyang Rice Terraces- hybrid landscapes that represent resolution between working man. MAYN design interprets these formations by using continuous curve and otoshiana technique cuts and details. Garments also take reference from villagers minimalistic work wear in terms of color, widths and lengths, number of slits and compartments, adaptive details and use of waterproof materials and rubber coating. These experimental materials are used together with Tencel and classics like cotton, linen and wool.
Aesthetic complementary to organic curves of the rice field terraces, designer found in the work of surrealist artist Jean Arp. That is the source of the collection's minimalistic pallet ( blacks, whites, and dark navy), dynamic color- blocking, organic curves and details.
