Very Sixties Max Mara winter coat

I love this winter coat from the Max Mara 2012 fall-winter collection because it looks so chic. Think Emma Peel from the 1960s TV series, The Avengers. In light grey with little fur puffs at the end of the sleeves, this coat will keep you warm and still make you look extremely cool. Max Mara […]

Funky patent leather car shoes from Max Mara

If you love the comfort of the car shoe but tire of their staid, conservative look, check out these patent leather car shoes in bright colours from Max Mara’s fall-winter 2012 collection. You can wear these shoes with jeans, wool trousers, a mini dress or mini skirt, and winter pantyhose. They are great to walk […]

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.

Max Mara Pre-Fall 2011: simplicity and elegance

Max Mara Fall Winter 2010 shoes, boots and bags

Max Mara comes up with the most beautiful accessories (bags, shoes and boots) season after season. No loud obnoxious logos, no frutsels, doodads, studs and buttons, no hideous fringes. Just high quality leather and stylish, minimalist design that exudes quiet luxury. If, like me, you are fed up with the garish accessories that other fashion […]

Max Mara Spring 2010: elegant military look

The military look is “in” this spring, again, you might say, as it’s been going in and out since the late 1960s. But few fashion houses have created military-inspired clothes that are soft and feminine. Max Mara has come up with the best one I’ve seen so far: a long ton sur ton putty knitted […]

I finished looking through the Spring 2010 Max Mara collection and found several clothes and accessories that I would definitely wear. My favorite is this black dress. Not only is the photography stunning, but the […]
