BRAND NEW – MUST SEE EMERGING BRANDS: MAXIMILIAN DAVIS

Maxmilian Davis, after debuting only a year ago, has become an international fashion staple with the eponymous brand MAXIMILIAN

Visionary and eclectic, a mix of rigor and experimentation, Davis’ inspiration comes from his Trinidadian heritage, from old photo albums of his family, from the strict lines of British fashion of the ’60s and ’70s, immortalized in the photos of his grandmother, who emigrated from Trinidad to England in 1965. 

Davis reimagines and reinvents this historical period, redeeming the People of Color narrative by exploring a broader range of perspectives and identities, heretofore overlooked by the fashion industry.

So here is a collection with optical prints, black and white contrasts and an unmistakable Trinidadian touch, and nostalgic nods to the Caribbean. Davis takes a style, a current that already exists and makes it his own, reclaiming entire historical periods and iconic references for his community.
