Runway News


If there’s one guarantee at any Max Mara show, it’s that the coats and fabrics will be top notch. As promised, the well established designer outwear favorite delivered with a slew of covetable looks for Fall/Winter 2010.

This season, the brand’s outerwear was heavily influenced by classic military silhouettes, which translated into cinched at the waist looks – tailored at the top and loose on the bottom, structured popped-up collars, lots of buttons, and gray, black, and camel colors. There were some loosely tailored looks thrown into the mix, many of which were given waist-area structure via slender belts that turned out to be the most eye-catching – notably, a camel corduroy swing-like coat that was perfectly styled with a black turtleneck and boots.

Unfortunately, as beautiful as the season’s outerwear looks were, the apparel – heavy on gold and embroidery – left a little to be desired. Does anyone really need to be wearing gold, loosely draped harem-like pants tucked into boots?
