Closing the Paraiso Miami Beach shows at the SLS South Beach Hotel, Maaji turned up the party with their Resort 2021 collection.
With every piece that walked down the runway, we escaped to a mystical world, a lush paradise full of living souls, dancing hearts and vibrant swimwear in zebra, tiger and cheetah prints mixed with flowers and floral prints as the flora and fauna come together in nature.
The brand played with proportions, creating exaggerated shapes that will work well for beach-to-bar looks creating #beyondthebeach garments and styling. We also saw kitsch elements, using bold brights and tongue-in-cheek graphics to create playful, over-the-top designs. Simple silhouettes with maximalist prints, details, and patterns were also in the proposal. Bold kitsch graphics, including palm trees, flowers, birds, abstract figures, animal prints, and tropical designs.
As usual the runway finished with the models celebrating and dancing down the runway with the designer and T-shirts saying in glitter “we are all in this together” as a sign of support to the fashion industry.
