Lady Melissa Percy on the inspiration behind Mistamina’s second collection
Mistamina’s second collection has just landed! Designed for action girls who love the great outdoors, the chic yet practical pieces are a new depth of dressing for adventurers, developed with practicality in mind with an edgy tomboy twist. From an outdoor, country girl’s perspective there is a very true quote which is ‘there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad kit’.
With this in mind, I’ve developed a collection of vibrant, outdoor clothing which can be worn in both an urban and a rural setting. I’ve learned so much about the need for good clothing for women over the years, having a sister and Mum who have also found it hard to have their own sense of style that reflect our individual personalities
Growing up with a passion for the countryside, I spent my childhood shooting, fishing, building dens and messing around on quad bikes. My friends and I would end up buying men’s clothing in small sizes as there was just nothing cool yet versatile for girls to wear outside.
I saw there was a gap for affordable, flattering and fun country clothes, which could be worn anywhere by anyone and so the brand was born. Building the brand has been a fantastic experience and journey so far, I’ve learnt a lot and am so pleased when I hear amazing reviews from customers or see photos of girls wearing Mistamina!
The collection is the perfect fit for a relaxed attitude to country life, as well as city style. I hope you enjoy wearing the pieces as much as I do!
