MadeMe, the New York-based label that has defined authentic street-inspired womenswear since 2007, is proud to introduce its Fall / Winter 2011 collection of women’souterwear and shirting. Consisting of four unique pieces, the collection showcases MadeMe’s signaturestyles updated for fall in luxe fabrics and with unexpected details, alongside first-ever pieces for thebrand. The collection hits retail in October, with an online pre-sale beginning June 27.
As the face of the Fall collection, model Andrej Pejic sets the tone for a playfully androgynous line thatcombines traditionally masculine silhouettes with feminine fits and designer Erin Magee’s trademarkstreet sensibility.
The Fall / Winter 2011 offering is anchored by a MadeMe x Schott NYC Custom Women’s PerfectoMotorcycle Jacket. A perfect marriage between two New York brands, the collaboration is given someunique flair with a cotton Liberty of London Edenham Floral Pattern Lining to contrast with the black,lambskin leather exterior. The jacket is made in the USA and features trademark Schott NYC details in aslim, cropped custom fit. While motorcycle jackets have been a staple of the MadeMe label for severalseasons, this marks the first partnership with Schott NYC, originators of the asymmetrical zipped leathermotorcycle jacket.
Also new for fall is the Team Jacket, a first of its kind for MadeMe. Crafted from Canadian Melton Wool,the jacket uses tonal leather appliqué on the front and back in lieu of traditional leather sleeves, fora wearable, versatile look. With the phrase “¿Quién Es Esa Niña?” (which means “Who’s that girl?”)embroidered over the right breast instead of owner’s name and a rose stitched on the back, the TeamJacket is infused with a flirtatious personality and comes in both black and red.
The collection is rounded out by two printed Japanese chambray shirts. Available in both polka dot andfloral prints, the button-down shirts feature two breast pockets and a slim fit, the perfect incarnation ofMadeMe’s menswear-as-womenswear look.
