This stunning piece is from the Italian avantgarde brand Ma+, which was founded in 2006 by Maurizio Amadei, a former member of the legendary Carpe Diem team. Characteristics of Ma+ are a long and slim silhouette, details made from real silver, and their iconic cross logo which can be found on nearly all of their pieces. Adding to that, the brand is known for its unique fabric choices and unusual construction techniques. Garments are for example often made from only one single piece of fabric. All Ma+ pieces are completely handmade in a small atelier, just outside Rome, Italy.
This blazer is one of the most incredible pieces from Ma+ and of artisan fashion in general. It is an ultra-light unlined blazer made from 100% ramie. This natural fiber does not only look the part but is also very breathable and incredibly comfortable to wear. The look of the blazer is rather worn-in and washed with intentional pleats in the fabric. The fit matches the casual look and is rather relaxed. Adding to that, the blazer features raw hems and the iconic cross logo in sterling silver on the sleeve. The closure is no traditional button but rather a small metal hook that is nearly invisible when worn. The blazer has two hidden pockets up front for added practicality. All in all, this is not only the perfect blazer for spring and summer, as well as a great layering piece all year round, but also a must-have for every serious collector of avant-garde fashion.
