Athletic chic" said the show notes and we were to take them at their word. So simple were the cuts, with no trappings of detail, that it had a Jil Sander quality to the collection.
A pallete of nude, yellow, purple, orange and navy was used to its full potential as monotone backless jumpsuits, ankle length pants, satin jackets and halter suede onesies. Long-sleeved fine knits had a varsity edge with contrasting colour sleeves.
But the streamlined collection also had a dose of refined sex appeal. Palazzo pants (lots of these about) were slashed to the thigh, high-neck shirts were tucked in to tiny shorts to look like all-in-ones and sheath tunic dresses revealed hotpants. Indeed, stripping things back has worked very well for MaxMara.More
