With the Pre-Fall 2022 collection, Max Mara pays tribute to the women who embody one of the house’s key values: “Classic doesn’t have to be conservative”.
The House’s muse for the collection is Frances Ann Lebowitz, a native New Yorker, a writer, wit, raconteur and actor, who is known for her sardonic social commentary. In the seventies she embodied the hip, downtown Manhattan of Andy Warhol’s ‘Interview’ and now she is wowing a new generation of fans in Martin Scorsese’s documentary series “Pretend It’s a City”.
Warhol’s advice to ‘always wear the same thing’ may have influenced the iconic Lebowitz look that Max Mara loves: bespoke Savile Row pinstripe jacket, fine poplin shirt with French cuffs, washed-out jeans, western boots and a cashmere greatcoat.
This collection, therefore, features city-chic dressing combined with understated elegant pieces for the effortlessly cool woman. A colour palette of deep navy, beige and just a hint of soft pink, keeps this clean and simple collection wearable for all.
Pinstripe jackets work perfectly with bleached-out boy-cut jeans, while patchworked prints mirror the ones that decorate men’s ties. To finish, Max Mara’s new season T-shirts, gave a nod to a campaigning streak with boldly graphic slogans.
