International designers Laetitia De Allegri And Matteo Fogale have joined forces with leading British tile manufacturer Johnson Tiles to produce an immersive installation at the V&A for this year’s London Design Festival.


Taken from the French term meaning ‘placed in the abyss’, ‘Mise-en-abyme’ combines huge transparent acrylic shapes with bespoke floor tiling to create a walk-through installation.


Using advanced Article technology, the supersized tiles have been printed with a bespoke colour design; each tile has 3% less colour than the one before. This gives the illusion that the installation is almost floating in the midst of the V&A. 


The designers explain, “what we wanted from the start was to create an experiment, something that was not just a piece of design to look at but also an experience for the visitor.”


The London Design Festival runs from 19th to 27th September 2015.

The MiH Pre-Autumn/Winter 2015 collection is defined by a confident approach to dressing, with unexpected pairings of tailoring, oversized shapes and denim with feminine elements.



The Linda Jean is our denim statement of the season; a high rise and tapered leg makes for a true vintage cut. With a flattering slim leg and a 10-inch rise, the Daily Jean is the denim girl’s dream jean. Subtle hints of western detailing give an authenticity to 70s-inspired pieces - the Western Shirt in saturated indigo chambray with yoke detailing and snap buttons, and the expertly cut Grace Dungarees. 


This is the universal spirit of denim dressing.

An identifiable characteristic of the MiH DNA is to experiment with various denim washing techniques resulting in a selection of blue and chambray hues. This playfulness in tone is apparent in the canvases of Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993), a colourist master with an exquisite palette.


Based on the West Coast of the United States, Dieberkorn made abstract expressionist art for over forty years. His artistic identity drew features such as lighting and shapes from his surroundings and he took huge inspiration from where he lived at any given time. Diebenkorn’s work can be separated into series according to his location.


His early abstract works in New Mexico are infused with a combination of warm dusty colours and cold shades of the elements.


Later during his stay in Berkeley his work mirrors the colours near the water.

During his stay at Ocean Park of Santa Monica, where the climate was more gentle, the paler tones are apparent.




The Talisman Print is our Spring/Summer 2015 subculture statement. Incorporating triangles, yin yangs and peace symbols, the print is our tribute to the spirit of freedom and optimism synonymous with the 70s.



The hand-painted print is applied to silk using a multi layered screen-print technique using a colour palette of blues, greys and neutral tones - available on two lightweight silk pieces; the Odessa Dress and the Surf Shirt.


Following the success of our resort capsule collection for NET-A-PORTER.COM, another exclusive collection for Main Spring/Summer 2015 launches today. 


Inspired by summers on the road in the South of France, our Chief Creative Officer, Chloe Lonsdale, says “This is our cool interpretation of the 70’s trend for high summer. The whitest of white denim with delicate lace guipure and easy chambray separates have us dreaming of the summer months.”




The seven piece collection includes the Tunic Dress and Tunic Top, combining frayed hems with white embroidery, and chambray pieces like the embroidered cropped Arco Playsuit, and the smocked Circle Top which have an easy, throw-on wearability.


NET-A-PORTER.COM buyer Octavia Bradford says: “We’ve fabricated some of MiH’s most classic shapes into a summer-ready broderie, pale blue chambray and fresh white denim- think Jane Birkin in Cap Ferrat in the mid-70’s.”
