Max Mara Fall Winter 2011: sleek, elegant retro look

Max Mara is one of my favorite fashion design firms. They consistently make beautiful, elegant clothes. The coat continues to be their main strength. No one makes better coats than Max Mara.

Goat Autumn-Winter 2011: quiet luxury in a simple dress

After posting that lovely pink shift dress from Goat, I found another one from the 2011 autumn-winter collection that I think is simply divine.

Max Mara’s Summer Cube is one perfect lightweight jacket
