At the dawn of a rebirth, Max Mara presents its new spring-summer 2022 collection, declining the new canons of post-pandemic fashion according to the brand’s point of view.
The result is a concentration of very classic office or workwear looks, with elegant and refined silhouettes. The color palette is very varied. The dominant colors are beige, white and black, briefly interrupted by some interference in orange and lemon yellow.
Without doubt the pandemic has influenced the Italian maison’s point of view, dampening its most irreverent impulses in favour of a more restrained enthusiasm. The fashion according to Max Mara is a something wearable every day, comfortable and relaxed, perhaps even more today, especially after the lockdown experience.
Griffiths was inspired by Francoise Sagan’s Bonjour Tristesse and Otto Preminger’s film. The designer took his cue from the way the characters travel in their own mind, something to which we are quite accustomed given the days spent closed in our rooms.
The looks recall the main codes of the brand, particularly famous for its outerwear clothing. These are accompanied by other additional details, such as the precious cashmere processing on sweaters, reinterpreted as tops and bralette, and on dresses. The cashmere adds the leather of miniskirts and mini dresses from the silhouettes of the 90s.
More comfortable and oversized, the coats and jackets of the suits, combined with tops and miniskirts. It is evident the magnetic wave of the bralette trend, which Griffiths managed to interpret with neutral colors and classic fabrics, remaining faithful to the style of the brand.
The collection, although sometimes very austere, remains chic, elegant and comfortable. Absolutely wearable on every day occasion that life will reserve for us once we get out of the pandemic.
