HARMATTAN IS HERE. STARTING THE NEW SEASON IN... 3...2..1!
Starting new season from the soles up!
In narrow terms, we're launching the very first drop of the new styles from Miista's AW16 Collection: HARMATTAN and we want to tell you everything about it!
Taking a bold turn, our collection is inspired by the lifestyle and aesthetics of the Tuareg tribe, and the deserts they roam.
Miista celebrates the matrilineal Tuaregs, and their unmatched craftsmanship. HARMATTAN aims to capture some of the culture's aesthetics, a culture that is lead by woman.
Dry chalky tones and rich organic textures contrasted with the big blue sky have inspired the look and feel throughout.
Gemstone appliqués, and satin sheen stingrays mimic the glimmering of the sun emanating off the sand. Deep ombre tones and flock speckles are brushed atop soft plushy suedes.
Capturing the heat, wool mohairs and felted woollens juxtapose ball bearing trims and striped jacquards.
Each shoe is a landscape of texture. Printed pony hair dances with striped leathers. Gritty, saturated browns fiddle with dusty blues, muted reds, and sequin embellishments.
Harmattan is a multi-sensory journey, meshing elements from the Tuareg and the streets of London. As always, we've found a freshly elegant balance in unusual contemporary design.
