Tomas Maier’s spring 2016 lineup, consistent with his casual-side-of-life philosophy, offered breezy looks that could transition seamlessly from the city to a weekend getaway. Cotton dresses, for example, ranged from a red shirt style with a generous skirt and asymmetric buttons to a black cutout number. He also offered simple linen slipdresses in a bright palette, which he envisions as a staple in his customer’s wardrobe.
On a more inspired note, he offered peasant blouses paired with full skirts, pom-pom embroidery on a denim jacket and along the waistline of a fit-and flare-dress, and fitted cardigans over colorful intarsia slipdresses — all of which hinted at Southern Spain. “A little bit of Miró, Dalí in the air,” Maier said. “[Spring’s] condensed — it does not stay that long in the store — [so it] should be very appetizing.”
Maier continues to build his brand. He recently opened his fifth store, in Bal Harbor, Fla., and this season added eyewear to his repertoire. “I’ve designed eyewear before, it’s very close to me,” he said of the 10 styles in the collection.
