You can never have too much of a good thing. Especially when we’re talking about the most perfect, envious and comfy winter coats. What else could you expect from Max Mara? Well, nothing but their signature coats. And of course their famous camel palet. The Italian label has proven to not just design easy, trendy clothes, but items that actually work and are highly valued in any woman’s wardrobe. Although, any, you have to have some big money to spent. The label sent oversized outerwear (of course) in varying shades of camel, beige (of course) and even some soft pinks down the catwalk. Pretty descent and office-ready you could say. But never judge to early folks, because those dark lips and golden shiny sequins (even a nipple gate) were the most in-your-face-sign that there was more going on underneath that classic camel coat.
And soon enough it was spiced up by some heavy splashes of bold colours such as orange, blue, green and yellow. Sometimes all in one outfit. The striped prints, fluffy sweaters, furry floor-lenght coats and pentyhose made it more playful. Same goes for the oversized suits and the huge striped pockets on blazers and jackets. Although the previous fall collection, inspired by Marilyn Monroe and embodied by Gigi Hadid, felt more sensual, this collection felt more like a “I’m not trying to be really sexy, I just am (and please, don’t take me too seriously)” It may not be the most entertaining and talked about show on the Milanese fashion schedule, but they certainly know how to stay true to their signature aesthetic, which is still one of our favourites.
