Miista is a fashion forward footwear brand based in hackney, in London.
Miista’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection ELECTROMANCER explores the sweaty energy of an industrial rave, the unexpected joy elicited from a hot pink kitten, the ancient natural structure of geodes, the futuristic fantasy feel of the 1962 science fiction novel Necromancer, the magic encapsulated within a nebula, the intricate neon body of a jellyfish, the yellow orange of the Omega Nebula, the magic of natural forces and the unstructured beauty of the vast unknown.
‘Miista takes inspiration from sci-fi to ‘deep beneath the dirt’ finding equilibrium between the strange unknown and the true magnificence of nature. Light played a significant role within the collection Miista experimented with Lucite and iridescent leathers in order to create footwear with a post-modern, futuristic feel.’
In order to capture the Sci-fi inspiration Miista used many unorthodox materials to create their footwear including Perspex heels, matte plastics and pastel colours, then bringing the collection out of the unknown and back to earth by using textures and original patterns inspired by organic material such as minerals, spores and various terrain.
The colour palette is mostly made up of pastels. Blues, oranges, reds, pinks and purple.
Miista set out to create a collection that was completely new and beautiful and by focusing their ispirations on the two most opposite entities and marrying them together creating something that is truly captivating and gorgeous!
