GOING SOLO: Mira Mikati is stepping out alone. The designer and retailer – who is co-owner of Plum in Beirut – has been creating the Ç x Façonnable capsule collection since 2013. She now has a line under her own name and is moving in a different direction. Mikati’s fall 2015 collection is a frenzy of embroidered emoticons and cartoon-like slogans splashed across shapes varying from classic tweed coats to a top with a grid-pattern like a page from an exercise book. “It’s my life and my universe and my vision,” said the designer. “It’s a bubble of happiness.” Certain designs in the collection are created in collaboration with cartoon artist Darcel.
