Funnel neck asymmetric coat with hybrid fabric mix extra long sleeves. What? Hard to describe so let’s break it down and let me tell you about the many ways and why we love Maika.
This is our third reworking of one of our most unusual and best loved styles.
We have to keep reworking it because every season we sell out and the demand is there.
So why don’t we simply make more?
As a small independent brand we do not make and indeed with the artisans we use we actually do not have the capacity to make large quantities of any style and indeed we prefer not to.
We like using our local community to manufacture our goods and if that limits our production then so be it, once it’s gone it’s gone.
But you guys who initially miss out demand that we bring it back or at least something close to it.
So what makes Maika special?
Maika is made from a unique combination of cotton and nylon jersey mix.
The style itself is interesting a gorgeous asymmetric cut with a short front and a longer length split hem back. The collar can transform into a slim high funnel neck.
But the standout feature are the style of the arms, they are overly long and truly very individual with a half and half fabric combination, being made from cotton/nylon and mid weight durable ribbed stretch jersey. Sounds crazy, believe me it is...we wanted something different and threw all of our ideas into a big pot and at the end of the thinking process thought we liked them all and said what the hell let's keep all the ideas and somehow make it work.
Our manufacturers thought we were mad (we are!) but hey several samples later and we had a style to love, a bit quirky but not overdone and away from the usual, we know you have a choice of where and what to buy so we want to offer real choice and a style that you can grow into and want to keep wearing beyond the next fashion trend.
We haven’t neglected the lining either we have improved it with a soft padded lightweight diamond quilt, light enough to wear through the autumn and versatile enough to wear when the the weather gets rough.
Little details mater so six gunmetal buttons complete the design to give a stylish future proof look to this style.
Maika, is cool, distinguished, stylish and both fun and functional.
We love it and hope you will too.
Did we mention, it’s only available in BLACK?
