The resort '13 collection, which only plays a supporting role in the film, features some highly covetable pieces including a two-toned, calfskin, leather jacket and lovely blue-beaded sandals. Ironically, the collection is South American-inspired and crafted in India and Italy; however, Maiyet carefully selected Kenya as the backdrop for their film, hoping to bring more exposure to work of Kenyan artists whose jewelry-making processes and products, they believe, far exceed most others.
Resplendent sunrises, a stampeding herd of giraffes, a girl making sweet, candid observations about her partner, like, "You seem very at ease here. Happy," the film is secretive and hushed, but we feel compelled to witness a relationship that is deeply valued by all involved.
Go ahead and get a glimpse at the way an unconventional line (its goal is to highlight and support artisanal skills from all over the world) takes an unconventional — and welcomed — approach to presenting a fresh collection.
