When most people think of MiaMai, they think of Monica Outlander’s high fashion avant garde creations that flirt with androgyny. Produced with grand spectacle and presented with artistry and poetic insight, they are her hallmark. However, a truer hallmark, I think, is her great flixibility and range in design. She is not content to issue endless iterations of the same shapes and ideas, and truly does go back to the drawing board for new inspiration. Take this ultra-feminine and soft-edged flowing dress that she recently released at Fashion For Life. It is the antithesis of the sharply defined, hard-edged androgynous designs and yet, there are distinct MiaMai details such as the lush peacock feather collar that make it a cohesive element in her body of work.
The skirt is lushly romantic with layers upon layers of fabric, the opaque batiste and sheer tulle prints floating together in a cloud of femininity. I love how it gives the impression of a floral print, but is really an abstract print more reminiscent of leopard spots.
Here you can see the detail of the collar and how well it ties this dress into her other collections. The skin is from Katsucide and is also a Fashion For Life release. I have developed a fondness for this skin whilst wearing it about because I keep getting compliments on it everywhere. I do love the dramatic eye shadow. The hair is an old style from Mirone that I love and the earrings are from Paper Couture. I chose them because they seem to echo the eye of the peacock feathers.
I wore these romantic silk shoes from Eclectica. They are color change and have four fabrics to choose from.
