BEHIND THE SCENES WITH THE MIA PROJECT

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH THE MIA PROJECT

Considering the fact that most of my writing refers to my love for tailoring and workwear, and memories of being a bit of a tomboy as a kid, you’d think that I would have posted some form of men’s fashion-related piece by now. Especially as around a quarter of you lovely readers are men (or so technology tells me, anyway).

So it was perfect timing when only a few weeks ago a friend of mine, founder of new menswear label MIA London, asked me to put on my stylist hat and assist with a photo shoot for the brand’s latest collection. The brand, currently specialising in high-waist, slim-tailored trousers perfect for the modern gentleman, boasts South African roots but is steadily cultivating a worldwide audience.

Such was the quality of each pair’s cut and texture that on many occasions throughout the shoot, I found myself thinking about how I would style each pair on myself. The Audrey Ruston textured brown trousers, for example, would be perfect for work when paired with a sleeveless white blouse and nude pumps. Or the Ingrid Bergman navy pair, when worn with an oversized men’s Oxford shirt and ladies’ brown brogues.

Anyway, I digress. This is not a womenswear post.

To the males reading this – all 25% of you – go and shop the MIA London trousers online here, or head down to the Fashion Meets Music pop-up shop in Camden where you can see them up close and personal.
