The creation of the collection “Escapism” she was guided by Mira May's fascination with capes and the desire to escape the default roles and expectations of mundane society. In her own words: “The word “cape” derives from the Latin ex cappa, meaning “to escape”. A cape may seem like a rather simple, sleeveless garment, but the near magical power and liberation when you wear it, is undeniable. Another reason why I chose the cape as the centerpiece of my first collection is because it has the unique ability to combine all three themes I look for in my designs: opulence, bohemian effortlessness, and a touch of mysticism."
