Maison Voleurs is a London based menswear fashion label born out of passion for clean and understated design. The vision of founder and creative director Mirela Iordache is to explore different interpretations of contemporary masculinity in avant-garde silhouettes.
The collection embodies casual cool downtown style drawing inspiration from military to rock grunge always finished with an edge. Modern tailoring, appreciation of functional and a rigorously monochromatic palette are the cornerstones of Maison Voleurs’ dichromatic, urban aesthetic.
Sole caught up with Mirela, founder of Maison Voleurs’ at her studio in Shoreditch, East London to discuss the inspirations behind her debut collection.
Mirela: “For me everything starts with an impulse and stimulus. The stimulus can be visual, aural or something that was just born amidst a lazy morning conversation. It’s when I feel something unique, something strange, and something that I have never experienced before. That is when I try to investigate the reason behind the experience. That invariably gives birth to an Idea. It grabs hold of me and doesn’t relent unless I translate and bring it to a resolved collection.”
“There is always a Muse. It needn’t be a man or a woman though. It can be an experience or an idea or a painting that lingers and haunts you and you could be so obsessed by it that you try to analyze the reasons behind the obsession. In doing so, you plunge into the depths of your own being. That is where you find your idea, your form and the reasons for your obsession that eventually seep into your work. I’m not giving you a name, but yes I am attracted to the idea of a man who is reflective and confident. He knows what he wants. He has attitude. The collection “Dichromatic” is tells the story of this man.”
