Milan: ‘Tis the season for keeping toasty and warm and what other brand other than Max Mara could send out a collection of craveworthy, cozy wrap yourself-up in coats. It would appear that menswear materials and sartorial cuts were high on the list for the Max Mara design team. Known for  luxurious materials, traditional  fabrics such as tweed, heringbone, Prince of Wales checks and double-faced cashmeres were used in multiple ways. Every coat was cleverly crafted with of-the-moment additions of fur collars and linings and the cut – endlessly classic. Max Mara is a brand that is quintessential in it’s choice of colour palette and this was as soft as the materials and cocooning shapes – gentle shades of winter white to camel  and a soft sage. But it was not just coats, quilted puffer jackets, blazers and gorgeous oversized sweaters that looked almost classically studious were worn over slim pencil skirts and slim dresses with a sport edge rounded out a collection with all the hall marks of defined luxury. – Lizzy Bowring
