Maya Bash Autumn/Winter 16by Jessica Laub | 04.12.16
Maya Bash is an Israeli fashion designer whose latest AW16 collection blends history and memory into her designs. This collection recalls the designer’s childhood in the Soviet Union of the 1990s, during economic downturn and political change, when clothing and raw materials (among many other things) were scarce.
The modest cuts and long proportions reflect this, but unexpected flourishes and pleats soften the looks throughout this collection. These have been influenced by Maya Bash’s personal perspective when “in a child’s eye, this time was also incredibly energizing as the scarcity encouraged creativity and challenged aesthetic conventions of gender, class and age.”
In keeping with previous collections, Maya Bash AW16 features high quality, natural fabrics, and the designs are unisex.
