Malaikaraiss Autumn Winter 2021 – Citizen M

Citizen M is all about the minimal wardrobe – how to create essentials than can be worn and styled in many different ways. Either dress it up or down – from tomboy to effortless chique, from Hailey to Halston. So the base builds the garment – worsted GOTS-certified wool fabrics for power suits, dresses made of Japanese micro-fiber or satin printed like a vintage wallpaper or embellished with sequins. Tweed and Bouclé knits made of recycled wool and alpaca.

A color palette from understated neutrals and soft sage, to vibrant emerald or pink and tomato red, makes the garments come to life. Next step – how shapes and silhouettes comfort the female body.
If the suit is boyfriend cut or body-conscious, it´s the details that make a pattern the perfect fit.

It´s this eclectic mix between feeling comfortable and sassy at the same time. Last but not least: accessorize it! This season’s jewelry was inspired by Alexander Calder – who liked to play with shapes and elements. Combined with Malaika ́s love for imperfections and flaws.
Resulting in layered Earrings, triple hoops and statement rings, structured necklaces, and mesh colliers in a unique clash of gold and silver shades. Just as one can compose colors or forms, so can one compose motions.
