Resort 2016 : Max Mara

I thought it would be a perfect fit to write about the Max Mara Resort 2016 collection, due to it's grand new opening on Old Bond Street - a glamourous 3 story store in London. I for one, cannot wait to visit. I have never personally been in a Max Mara store, I have only seen some of the pieces in concessions such as Selfridges and Harrods whenever I'm in London. The show took place in London, where the creative director, Ian Griffiths, was born and bred. Originating from New York, it was great to see the brand come to life in my favourite city.

I personally think this particular collection completely contrasted the typical talent of Max Mara - incredible tailoring and outerwear. It really caught up with a boxing vibe at the start so to speak. It was completely different from what I imagined. It started with classic pinstripe and chalk stripe pieces - a design I am a huge fan of - I think it looks so good on a woman. Mesh racerback tops teamed with fur headpieces and mittens also grasped the feel of masculinity - with the boxing feel. Boxing shorts and slouchy trousers added to this feel of the set. It was really growing on me as I flicked through

As the collection progressed, more colour was introduced and thats really what I wanted to see. Malaika Firth looked absolutely gorgeous walking down the runway in shades of pink - it lit up the collection. As a whole, the resort 2016 set really had a more winter feel rather than an all round year one. Although some of the looks were sleeveless, it was inevitable that the creative director had more winter and autumn in mind, well, Max Mara is known for its outerwear after all. I think the injection of colour adds diversity to the collection, and overall it was something I wasn't expecting - but I liked it. This time Max Mara had definitely ventured out with a more edgy collection in comparison to the AW15 runway show - but it just worked.
