Parisian luxury label MJZ has finally released its first-ever womenswear collection, and it was worth every bit of the wait. The brand, known for its ultra-luxe crocodile and alligator menswear creations, presented its highly-anticipated debut womenswear capsule at an exclusive fashion show at the Hotel de Crillon’s historic salons during Paris Fashion Week. The high-profile show was a celebration of MJZ’s inherent love for extravagant materials and limitless craftsmanship, but this time from a sophisticated, feminine perspective. Bold, timeless and unapologetically luxe, MJZ’s take on womenswear collection is pure, high-octane glamour.
The brand’s debut womenswear collection was a collaboration between MJZ’s founder Michael Chang and Project Runway winner Irina Shabayeva. “During her years in the industry, Irina developed an expansive design reach to become a truly multifaceted designer,” said Michael Chang of Irina Shabayeva. “She has the vision and ability to transform a piece of clothing into art.”
Commenting on her inaugural collection for MJZ, Irina said, “A woman who is sporting a head-to-toe crocodile look wants to be seen; she wants to stand out. Our collection translates these incredibly luxurious materials into a woman’s modern life.”
The exquisite collection is an ode to MJZ’s undeniable mastery of tailoring with crocodile and alligator skins, materials that are notoriously challenging to work with. Michael Chang and Irina Shabayeva have effortlessly manipulated these high-end exotic skins to create a comprehensive yet concise womenswear capsule consisting of statement dresses, jackets, skirts, coats and accessories that are surprisingly wearable. A spectacular debut, MJZ’s womenwear pieces have already found their way to the very top of our luxury wishlists.
The collection is available to purchase directly through MJZ’s made-to-measure services as well as the exclusive boutique in Hôtel Ritz Paris and at Material Good in New York City with prices starting from Dhs405,000.
