MaxMara Catwalk Fashion Show Milan FW2011/2012
We started our second day of Milan Fashion Week with the MaxMara show, as did actress Katie Holmes. The wife of Tom Cruise was chosen by the label as it’s new Face of the Future (an award for talent, style and contribution to the community at large). The brand, which celebrates it’s sixtieth anniversary this year showed a solid, slightly minimalistic collection.
Clean belted coats appeared in shades of white, nude, beige and grey. Leather skirts were combined with shorter jackets, blouses and sweaters. The dresses were simple yet sophisticated. Some pants were small like leggings, others were ultra-wide and even look like skirts.
Several evening gowns were made out of checked blankets (with sequins that added extra glamour) with kilt buckles at the side. Though they looked super soft and comfy, the models could hardly walk in them.
Besides the sequined checks and buffalo prints all looks were very basic, quite the opposite of all the colorblocking we’ve seen so far.
It was a classic collection, on which many modern women will want to get their hands on.
