Why the mesh?
Knitwear is our flagship material, we started with it, and we continue to celebrate it collection after collection. To sublimate it, we do not hesitate to play with colors and shapes to reinvent it each time. Since the creation of the brand, we have stored up a very precious know-how which helps us to respect the material and its richness. Indeed, knitwear is a natural, living material, so it is necessary to treat it with care so that it can express its exceptional qualities.
A warm material
For you, what is mesh?
For us, this is both warm and cozy. We imagine the cold evenings when we snuggle up in our favorite sweater, and the days when we just want to hide behind a huge turtleneck to feel surrounded by a garment that really accompanies us. We also think of the cool summer evenings that we wish were endless. These evenings that we love to share with those we love, and during which our sweater or cardigan turns into a real ally to help us extend them. The mesh accompanies us and even becomes the synonym of all these precious moments of sharing, whether we are alone enjoying a good book, or with people who are dear to us.
The softness of the mesh echoes this sweetness of life with us, enjoying every moment without having to think about how we are going to dress, because our mesh dresses us in nothing. It brings texture and volume to the simplest outfits to leave the opportunity to focus on the essentials. It is a sentimental, romantic material in which we are led to express our sensitivity in all elegance. Its touch, its softness, make its contact with the skin a real moment of tenderness. The mesh wraps around us for our greatest pleasure, embraces us when we wear it
Endless creativity support
At MAEVY, the mesh allows us to indulge in all types of creative experiences thanks to the diversity of existing threads. This knit's malleability allows us to offer both warm, winter knits and soft and cool knits for the summer season. Because, while knitwear is known to be a winter staple, it is also our summer ally by having certain little-known thermal properties.
This range of possibilities is an ideal ground for letting your inspiration flow according to the collections, the seasons, with as many colors or shapes as necessary to magnify women. Creativity is therefore to be seen as the desire to correspond to women in all their diversity, by offering them models that resemble them, both soft and full of character.
Comfort and elegance
A perfect compromise between comfort and elegance, such is the promise of knitwear. Relief, texture and comfort in no way prevent a nice fall that will make an outfit all the more beautiful with ease. They can be worn on all occasions. Our knitwear follows us everywhere, and lets us be ourselves by combining comfort and elegance at all times, like an invitation to shine naturally as a woman.
THE PITTI FILATI
For us, the quality contract necessarily involves the materials used. Indeed, MAEVY yarns are chosen directly at Pitti Filati, a trade fair in which brands who want to obtain high quality yarns are supplied. This event takes place in Florence, a fashion crossroads since the first half of the twentieth century. The values advocated during this annual meeting are: competence, openness to the world, innovation and sustainability. MAEVY is thus anchored in the tradition of the European textile industry which has made France and Italy benchmarks in the fashion world. In other words, their reputations are well established. It is for this reason that MAEVY supplies itself in this exceptional place, to reach excellence.

The leather ?
Not with us.
At MAEVY, we have chosen not to use skins, so no leather item will be presented in our collections. We decided to put the leather aside, on the one hand, because we are aware of the environmental impact of tanning hides, but also out of ethical concern for animal life.
However, since the feel and drape of leather remains creatively interesting, we create pieces in a similar looking material through the VEGAN theme. This vegan material allows us to benefit from the advantages of leather while respecting our values.
