Mikada is a new women’s line featuring graphic tees and key cut & sew pieces. In it’s third season, Mikada, the feminized version of “Mikado” – Japanese for emporer, is all about empowering women. Using iconography of classic Western beauty, Mikada takes inspiration from the glamour of European fashion magazines from days gone by. From haute French models daring you to “Imagine the Unimaginable” to Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis declaring, “I am a woman above everything else,” Mikada inspires ladies to rejoice in their femininity and know that there is power in acting like a lady. Based in Los Angeles and Hawaii, the ladies’ sunny attitude pervades the collection with the use of bright, happy colors. The cut & sew pieces feature outwear that is reversible and features nice details but the scene stealer by far was the acid washed pull-over hooded tunic. The Mikada website is under development so stay tuned for the new site – in the mean time, you can befriend them on Myspace.
