MFW: Max Mara

By: Tamara Arnew

The outerwear from Max Mara is rarely short of making a statement and the Fall 2013 collection made an oversized one. The collection had a definite vintage-finds feel with Bauhaus inspired thriftiness to dove grey, camel and mustard yellow oversized furs. The look was perhaps too provident for those who expected understated luxury from the line but came across as interpretable and with rock and roll aesthetic in layered proportions. 

The monochromatic color palate, teddy bear fur and cable motifs were styled in a way that still conveyed strong structure and tailoring and, despite a menswear element to many of the outwear pieces, were rovingly feminine. Turtlenecks overlaying leather, satin and full trousers completed the effect paired with round translucent sunglasses. Max Mara has pointed to fall and winter trends, forward from the arts and crafts movement of the summer, and has given picking pre-loved pieces a new mode.
