This was the best collection yet from Maiyet, a compelling reflection of its luxury brand ambitions and artisanal ethos, synced so that the fashion quotient was the main takeaway.

Program notes missed no opportunity to remind of Maiyet’s exotic, do-gooding sourcing mission — the hand-blocked batik prints from Indonesia, the Varanasi weavers whose production was interrupted by a goat, the knits handmade in Bolivia — handled as an undercurrent of crafty sophistication on clothes that were about summery ease. Some of the best looks had a light lingerie attitude rendered with bra tops, camisoles, slips and gowns. A sheer slip with delicate silver embroidery layered over a bralette and shibori miniskirt captured the season’s mood of transparency and shine, as did the main shoe: a strappy silver sandal with a geometric Lucite heel.
