CAPSULE COLLECTION 2015: COMFORTABLE SOLITUDE
COMFORTABLE SOLITUDE brings you a bewildering sense of peace that arises from self-seclusion. Being in an empty space is the absence of judgment and scrutiny. The collection draws parallel elements from abandoned buildings, emphasizing on broken lines and asymmetrical geometry. Inspired by lines, COMFORTABLE SOLITUDE is designed with a strong focus on challenging the conventional ways of construction. Through the use of monochromatic colors, the attention of the audience is directed towards the silhouette and construction of the garment.
COMFORTABLE SOLITUDE embodies a structured and geometric silhouette but with a very forgiving fit. It is comprised of monochromatic colors ranging from black, midnight blue, navy blue, cream and white. Most garments are fully lined with a clean finish. Fabrics with soft handfeel, such as egyptian cotton, silk and wool blend were chosen to deliver comfort to the wearer. These qualities will be preserved and remain integral to Mazuki’s identity as it develops more collections in the future.
CAPSULE COLLECTION 02: REPRESSION
MAZUKI Capsule Collection 02 embodies the concept of repression, a defense mechanism that was never taught but ingrained in our natural subconscious behaviors. It is an intuition shaped by mankind, leading to the lost of touch with the authenticity of one’s perceptions and feelings. Repression becomes a medium of isolation from within, leading to numbness and lack of expression. On a lighter note, the intention behind this collection is to spread the mindfulness of the natural sentiments from within.
“To be vulnerable is humane and beautiful. Most of us are engineered to be in control of our emotions that we lost touch with our authentic feelings,” said Miranda Mazuki, creative director of MAZUKI. “This collection is not about encouraging deeper repression but rather to encourage the freedom of expression.”
For this collection, MAZUKI translates the concept of the repressive mind by incorporating a fabric manipulation technique called “smocking” and loose drapery. The selection of colors include white, grey, black in addition of white and black stripes. MAZUKI continues to provide comfort and movement by selecting subtle textures and lightweight textiles such as cotton shirting, cotton poly, silky polyester and wool blend.
MAZUKI is available for purchase on March end.
