MAYL Wear™ is a concept brand. Created by Polish visual graphic designer Piotr Kopertowski in 2015. The brand is a creative platform for exhibiting his original artworks and designs as limited editions of wearable prints and high-quality products.
Since 2015, Piotr's clear vision for MAYL Wear was to be able to offer something that emphasized quality, sustainability and ethical responsibility. His commitment to quality is what drives MAYL Wear forward with each release; never settling for the baseline set by our peers, we strive to create the best of the best.
A WEARABLE CANVAS
Our clothing is conceptually a wearable canvas, displaying prints and artworks as a fabric edition. We use high quality printing methods and cotton and sewing to produce items that faithfully represent Piotr Kopertowski's artworks. His passion, skills and attention to details appears in all the items you can see on the website.
WE THINK BEFORE WE PRODUCE
MAYL Wear produces unique pieces, made after each order minimizing carbon footprint to almost zero.
A FEW WORDS
"Clothes are a form of self-expression, and how we dress impacts how we feel about ourselves, and vice-versa. So if adding something bold makes you feel better, then voila, proof that making a statement isn’t a shallow “look at me, look at me” concept.
Statement pieces define your personal style. They give an identity to your personal brand. There are certain pieces you wear that stand out no matter what you pair them with.
Overall I want you to wear something that will put you in a good mood. Statement pieces may have risen to trend status in fashion because street style blogs put them on the map, but they’ve maintained a staying power because of their ability to pull outfits together." - Piotr Kopertowski
In 2021, Piotr decided to develop and open his second store. The new store is a platform for exhibiting male addiction to lovemaking and pleasure by promoting seductive images and the passion for original, high-quality adult products.
