London-based Lebanese designer Mira Mikati jumped onto the fashion scene in 2007 as co-founder of the Middle East’s concept store, Plum. Later in 2012, Mikati was invited to design a capsule collection for Parisian label Façonnable and thanks to its sell-out success, spurred her to launch her eponymous namesake label. Today, the brand can count the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna as fans and is instantly recognisable from its fun emoji-style detailing, vibrant patterning and directional silhouettes. Inspired by the works of artists such as Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara and KAWS, each collection is an explosion of playful, cartoon-esque slogans, motifs and colour. Featuring everything from bold outerwear to quirky separates, every piece is guaranteed to inject a burst of character into your wardrobe.- less
