the return of jane mayle
it's safe to say that the 1990s new york fashion scene and its burst of new designers shaped the industry all across the globe. among them was a talented jane mayle, gracing the east village with her brick and mortar boutique which hosted her decadent designs for 10 years before closing its doors at the start of the recession in 2008. now, she returns to the scene with a newly redefined and reimagined version of her eponymous 90s era vintage-inspired designs: maison mayle.
“it’s not a reinvention,” mayle tells vogue. “it’s a distilling down of the things i care about and getting them more right than i did the first time around." she points out that "it’s not alienating to the previous customer, but she’s grown up a little, she has different priorities.”
the collection features intricate tailoring, beautiful 70s-era prints, fine hand-knits and flowy feminine dresses. also included in the collection are handbags and a large collection of jewelry inspired by her own treasures.
now, die-hard mayle fans no longer need to rummage through ebay for vintage once-upon-a-time original pieces. her fall 2016 collection is exclusively sold at barney's and at p.45 in chicago.
