The name ‘Mau’ is derived from the Middle Egyptian word ‘mjw’ meaning cat. The modern Egyptian Mau is said to have originated in 1952, in Italy, where exiled Russian Princess Natalie Trubetskaya met the cat of the Egyptian Ambassador. This intricate line drawing celebrates strong creative females with an overwhelming love for their feline friends, a great collection of books and possibly enjoys a glass of red wine at home. It was so fitting that my stylist and photographer has a cat named Tilly who visited the set to inspect the coconut shavings that was used to style the lookbook.
