The effect of sunlight on water tops the inspiration for our pre-wet 2018 collection. Taking a cue from the entire Glistening 2018 body of work designed by our creative director, Papa Oyeyemi for Maxivive.
Mxvv being the sport luxe extension of Maxivive borrows from the same creative well to put together a capsule inspired by the late 80’s documentary “Paris is burning” with a series of sport items taking a body building form.
Various elements, of glittery polyester, Cotton blend with metallic Lycra and non binary gym wear techniques, were pinned to the mood board, expressive colors, binding silhouette and functional work out studies were generally infused.
A simple design creation and infusion technique was employed in keying the inspiration into the designs with contrast, repetition and harmony widely used in creating the final designs and laying the fabrics out into pieces with shapes of fabrics becoming tights, shorts, leotards, wife beater tan tops, etc for a non binary body.
