This young Lebanese designer has a very impressive fashion resume. She began her career path by attending the Instituto Marangoni in Milan and the Institute of European Design. After graduating, she had stints at Elie Saab and Erdem before launching her own brand. Mira was selected by the Starch Foundation, created by Rabih Kayrouz and Tala Hajjar, to launch her first ready to wear collection in 2011.
We have an incredible amount of admiration for Mira Hayek. She exudes spontaneity and a joy for life that translate to collections full of color and originality. As an 80’s child, she draws inspiration from this era’s dynamic shapes and geometric patterns that make up the base of her collection. Loose silhouettes, geometric prints, flashy colors and the combination of materials are among the key elements of Mira creations; they combine the perfect balance of fun and comfort.
Mira Hayek’s collections are distinguished by their strong graphic aesthetic. Her inspiration stems from the constantly changing scene found in Lebanon and the Middle East. The brand is dedicated to urban women who have a dynamics sense of style. It is made for those who seek contemporary sportswear that can easily go from day to night.
There are no dresses with sequins or rhinestones in this collection, but that doesn’t keep our eyes from lighting up at the sight of Mira’s fall / winter collection. It is the epitome of chic comfort; the dresses are worn in loose fashion and a pair of harem pants are updated to look modern and easy going.
This latest collection is inspired by the contrast between rocky and urban landscapes. The spirit of the collection is also influenced by the work of Spanish artist Paco Come who created surrealist monochrome landscapes. The voluminous silhouettes mingle with geometric details to create comfortable, sporty pieces that are offbeat and unique.
In short, we remain amazed at the structured designs that make us want to start the new season in style.
