Milan is making such a lovely lovely case for structured brights and bare backs. MaxMara is like fun dressing for grown-ups. The brights colors are young and fresh but in classic silhouettes with subtle baring of skin. I love the easiness about the clothes, and that while the clothes are structured, they are not stiff. There’s a nice shape to everything, especially the jackets. The peacoat is transformed with metallic satin and a slightly belled shape. I normally quite detest yellow, but I can’t help but like these happy offerings. This yellow is warm and so very spring. MaxMara has added so much more to their normal presentation of classics and expertly-crafted coats.
But the best thing about this collection? Those tiny exposed cross-stitching seams on the dresses. They are a touch of genius that elevate those minimalist dresses.
