I was invited to a super special and romantic trip, to attend Max Mara’s Resort 2022 show first hand. The chosen location? Nothing more, nothing less than Ischia, a beautiful and charming Italian island located in the Gulf of Naples in the Tyrrhenian Sea.
It’s been amazing to spend a few summer days here and the pieces from Max Mara’s new collection reflect this environment: they are refined, full of attitude, but at the same time flowy and relaxed. The color palette is also impeccable, with neutral colors such as beige, cream, white and black, contrasting with shades of burgundy, red and guava pink tones.
The choice of the location is inspired by the short stories “Local Color” by writer Truman Capote. “The symbols of Capote’s narrative are his ‘swans’, beautiful women who led a glamorous life in search of perfection,” explains the brand. Oh, and the collection is also named after the stories, which now translates the current ‘swans’: modern, hard-working, but equally glamorous women. Totally cool, right?
In addition, the key pieces of Max Mara’s new collection include dresses, coats and light oversized shirts, with straight cuts and precious details, such as slits, collars and ruffles.
To honor this beautiful fashion show, I was inspired by everything that the collection translates, with a total white look, very light and comfortable. I wore a button-down shirt with a deep V-neck and puffy sleeves and and very comfortable yet chic flared pants. And of course, to bring out the oversized side of the collection, I chose a knit midi vest to throw over the shirt. Do you like it?
