MaxMara Spring 2011


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.
