What originally started as the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans, Miaou is the LA-based label by designer Alexia Elkaim bringing the early aughts back into style with a French twist. Raised between Paris and LA, Elkaim spent her youth submerged in vintage fashion, music, and art, inspired by the playfully sexy gamines of the 60’s and 70’s. Finding herself in need of a body-hugging pair of jeans, Elkaim embarked on making her own from a pair of vintage trousers found in a Parisian market - and just like that Miaou, French for “meow,” was born. Today the label has expanded beyond its statement jeans and into viral matching sets, corsets, and slinky dresses. Playful prints adorn silk skirts and sheer tops, while the label’s famous high-waisted, straight leg pants continue to flatter all shapes and sizes. Offering a fresh take on luxury womenswear, Miaou has perfectly captured the zeitgeist through its blend of kitschy nostalgia and is reimagining the French aesthetic for today’s woman.
