Designer Spotlight: The Slow Luxury of Maiami

Hmmmm, you are probably saying to yourself…what does slow luxury mean? It means taking the utmost time and care to create a high-quality product that is modern yet will stand the test of time. Kiskadee is proudly obsessed with the knitwear company Maiami.

Maike Dietrich, the designer and owner of Maiami, founded her label with one incentive in mind, sharing her personal passion for knitting in a superior collection that includes hand-knitted sweaters, cardigans, and accessories. Each special piece carries with it a modern and distinct combination of colors and selective designs to show the contrast between modernity and traditional handicraft. The open, natural weave is a texture devotee’s dream!

These sweaters can be worn beautifully alone as shown or over a simple long sleeve tee, button down shirt, or even a dress. Don’t let the design fool you…these pieces are extremely versatile.


The sweaters come in a variety of lengths sure to please everyone. The shorter versions are perfect as layering pieces or worn with your favorite high-rise jean.


Nothing from Maiami says “basic.” This elegant piece includes metallic yarn, which lends a chic vibe throughout. The key-hole neckline is a subtle yet distinctive detail that shows off a sexy décolletage.


Gorgeous, right?! This duster is as light as air yet cozy warm thanks to the soft, mohair yarn. The dusty rose color will carry you now until spring…it is a terrific layering piece to ward off any chill yet doesn’t have the weight of traditional coats. A great asset to any wardrobe!

In this tech-heavy world, it is wonderful to wear clothing that invokes a traditional, handmade feel and appeals to the softer side in all of us.
