Pre Fall 2021: Max Mara

Max Mara’s Pre Fall 2021 collection is very limited in colours and styles, with few garments very well selected and an interesting overlap of different materials. Ian Griffiths, Max Mara’s designer, speaks about the aesthetic of the collection as “combat tailoring”, which does not need explanation. The impeccable tailoring of the brand is declined in a military attire, in grey tones with a touch of white, black and pink. Griffiths gave space to his taste for tech fabrics already in the last collection of Max Mara: the same style develops here and increases its power, in a way more explicit way.

The icon of the Pre Fall 2021 is Lee Miller, model and journalist, very famous in the ’40 because of her work as war report for Vogue. Her style is incredible, always cheerful and perfect despite the landscape of war and disruption she used to follow. Functional and chic go well together. Indeed, they form a rather interesting contrast, very modern. The touch of sophistication – the pink organza shirt, the maxi bows under the chin, the balloon-sleeves – meets utilitarian and tech fabrics – the wide trousers closed at the ankle, the linear skirt with maxi pockets and the belt with attached little bags.

Jumpsuits and mini dresses are the pass-par-tout pieces of the collection. As Griffiths explains, we are now in a time when every excuse to dress up is valid. To go to the office won’t be any more so heavy because we will be happy to wear some good outfits and meet with our colleagues. Garments usually meant for evening dates will fit perfectly in our job-related meetings, since we need to find again the magic fashion used to give us in normal times. Comfort will be in the top 3 requirements of every outfit from now on. This is the biggest legacy of this protracted lockdown. With these guidelines in mind, gently offered by Griffiths and his long work in the field, we feel ready to safely adventure in the new year.
