So excited that Parisian brand Maje Paris has landed in Perth. Get the perfect French girl style right now!
Late last week I headed into the city to visit David Jones Perth to check out the brand new Maje Paris concession. I am so excited that Maje is right on our doorstep! As a bonafide Francophile, I could not love Maje more.
PARISIAN STYLE WITH MAJE PARIS
The story behind Maje is that its founder Judith Milgrom saw a gap in the market for a more affordable luxury brand for cool girls in the know. Milgrom wanted to create quality, stylish, and affordable collections with a true brand identity, and sell them in boutiques that offer the same comfort and service as luxury brands.
When we were in Paris last, I remember the days spent wandering around Le Marais, checking out the local stores as we grabbed food and explored. One of my favourite areas, this part of town felt like home. Lord knows I’d be keen to move in! There were a couple of Maje stores in the area that I remember going into, falling for their signature leather jackets, skirts and bags. At the time, given we were at the start of a several month trip, shopping wasn’t exactly in the cards for me. I remember longing for the chance to go back and pick up a piece or two.
Not only do Maje have stunning signature pieces that are perfectly cool Parisian girl essentials, they also have stunning collections full of French sophistication, elegance, complexity and wit. Actually, ‘clever’ is exactly the term I think of to summarise that French nonchalant style I love so much. Maje is definitely clever.
MY MAJE PARIS STYLE PICKS
Wanting to cover all of the bases, I picked out a Maje look that ticked some of my favourite style boxes.
An essential, the Perfecto Leather Jacket, in fiery red, is both a colour of the season and one I love to wear year round. Though this beautiful biker jacket also comes in a classic black or tan making it a beautiful staple.
The next piece that caught my eye was the studded ankle boot. I love to add a little rock n’ roll attitude to my looks and this stunning boot does exactly that. Actually, as I tried them on the sales girl said they reminded her of a boot she’d seen on Sienna Miller which I took as a good sign. Perfect to toughen up feminine dresses, they are great to mix and match with the delicate shirt.
Though I was tempted by the dress, I decided on the bee embroidered shirt, complete with gathered lace details. The wild garden theme is continued in the collection with butterflies and floral prints.
Finally, the paper bag waist belted jeans were the perfect basic to ground my look.
Chic yet relaxed? I think so. Though I felt mildly extra with this stunning red and studded boots, this is one outfit that captured my confidence. You know you have found a beautiful brand when new pieces just fit right in and can easily be mixed and matched with your favourites. For me, Maje does exactly that. You will see me rocking all of these pieces for a long time to come.
MY FINAL WORD ON MAJE
I am not going to lie, it may be a little dangerous to have Maje (and it’s older sister brand, the equally stunning, more androgenous Sandro Paris, who opened next door) right here in Perth. I have a feeling I’ll be making a few visits to add some wardrobe updates! This red bag was one thing I’d seen online that I feel has my name all over it. What do you guys think? Not to mention this super cute classic leather mini skirt! Dangerous! I knew that Maje would be the perfect Parisian brand to welcome to Perth and share with you all in a brand focus. Let me know which piece you love most below!
