Max Mara is pure elegance and I strongly recommend it if you're in search of great classics produced in an amazing range of lovely materials. Sportmax is the more audacious sister when talking about shapes and the use of materials. It is very fashion forward in a very 'pure' way and therefore one of my all time favorite brands. Whenever I have a fancy party or event it is absolutely one of the brands I recur to.
Obviously I had to wear some Sportmax to the FW show; I fell for the looks of this orange dress in combo with a brown leather trench-style coat. I’ve been obsessing over turtlenecks lately and as weather conditions were not that hot I decided a contrasting one would get the job done.
The FW collection was all about knotted belts and oversized volumes were shown in often raw and textured materials, which have become a Sportmax trademark. There was an abundance of beautiful knitwear and woolly creations. It was all overwhelmingly cosy but elegant and streamlined at the same time.
The color palette? A range of camel hues and white over some cognac-colored leather silhouettes, a dash of yellow and the ever so elegant likes of black.
