I have not met Mira Mikati, but I certainly would like to some day. This Lebanese, London-based designer makes colorful, comfortable clothes that are also tailored beautifully to last for years. You can tell that she has connections in the art world that inspire her clothing. You may find it intriguing that I am such a big fan of a designer loved by the very young and fashion forward stars like Beyoncé and Rihanna, but you know I like cheerful, happy clothes that make fashion fun. Mira Mikati pieces are perfect for casual, fun summertime.
My red and white striped Mira Mikati piece is described and sold as a skirt, but I decided it worked best on me as a dress at the beach. I always enjoy finding versatile pieces.
The casual, white skirt with an elastic waist and colorful cut-out toucan was great for heading out to the produce stand or going for a walk.
I have my eye on the olive jacket that could be great year round and is on sale right now as most of these pieces are. You may also be able to find Mira Mikati items at FarFetch.com and Poole Shop Charlotte.
