    "Maxwell’s silhouettes remain as exacting and body-limning as ever, but the prints he commissioned from the interiors company Voutsa have an artful, hand-rendered look. The juxtaposition is particularly effective on the opening number: a long belted dress aswirl with green polka dots whose draped hourglass effect is achieved with a paint brush, not pinning and tucking. It’s a knock-out. On other looks, he combined patterns, pairing a black-on-cream leopard motif slip dress with a spotted coat in the reverse colorway, or splicing a wallpaper floral with those leopard spots for a fits-like-a-glove long-sleeved sheath. “I wanted the prints to do a lot of the work on most of the silhouettes,” he explained." - Nicole Phelps for Vogue

    “I love the idea of showing up in that, and saying ‘I’m here!,” Maxwell laughed. “I’ve made a career of event dressing, but the event for me now is just going out in the world — or slipping down to the kitchen for a glass of wine.”

    "We gravitated toward their signature florals, trompe l’oeil Audrey Dots, and their iconic Lips, but expanded them by adding new color variations, and commissioned new tiger and zebra stripes as well. I thought in engaging this collaboration that I would be taking a big step outside my comfort zone only to realize that it was indeed a reflection of my ultimate sanctuary." Brandon Maxwell
