The socially conscious brand has hired Declan Kearney, previously at Alexander Wang. What will he bring to the table?

On our minds is Maiyet’s recent appointment of their first dedicated Creative director. The socially conscious brand founded by human rights lawyer Paul van Zyl has hired Declan Kearney, a former Design Director at Alexander Wang, to fit the bill. He will be responsible for all ready-to-wear and accessories, as well as advertising campaigns and brand imagery with the purpose to reinvent and reinforce the creative identity. Kearney has expressed an intention to fuse the modern and the artisanal, American sportswear and souvenirs from around the world. We are excited to see the outcome – quite possibly repositioning modern artisanal luxury. More here.
