Celebrity stylist Dani Michelle has worked with It-girls including Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kristin Cavallari, and Aya Muse designer Tina Rodiou has created pieces worn by fashionable models like Bella Hadid, Sofia Richie and Kaia Gerber, so when the two met, a chic collab was a natural next step.
Their partnership takes form in staple items with a modern edge — and it’s called Aya Muse x Dani Michelle.
“The collaboration was inspired by things we both have or are constantly in search of in our wardrobes. They are a modern minimalistic take on pieces every woman needs and can have in her closet for years,” Rodiou tells Stylish exclusively while celebrating the launch.
When taking a peek at their own clothing collections, both women found they were seeking classics in neutral tones that they could wear time and time again without being labeled outfit repeaters.
To that end, they created those very items: Think a rhinestone knit bralette and matching oversized cardigan, collared tops with a metallic front closure, a vegan leather strapless bustier, a mini turtleneck dress with a high slit, pleated trousers and more.
“We created pieces that I knew would work and can be styled so many ways. … The first thing that makes repeating outfits hard is when there’s a particular print that makes you feel like, ‘Oh I already wore this,’” Michelle explains.
“Whenever I buy something for myself or a client I always think of how many ways it can be worn or if it’s something that can be re-styled day to night,” she adds.
And the line is already A-list approved with the Poosh founder rocking their white tuxedo shirt over a black bikini while lounging in the sun earlier this summer on Instagram.
Other looks the stylist recommends: “You can pair the leather pants with a white tank or style up the tux dress with a belt and heels. The white trousers can be your go-to lunch look or wear them with a silk blouse for a cocktail affair.”
But whatever you choose, Michelle’s fashion motto is “be effortless and interesting.”
“The collection can make anyone feel like a slightly cooler version of themselves,” Rodiou says.
