Max Mara: Resort 2014


Designer: The collection was led by Max Mara’s head designer Ian Griffiths.

Inspiration: The bright costumes and controversial story line from Sergei Diaghilev's century old masterpiece ballet, The Rite of Spring.

Trends: The collection featured urban pieces in styles appropriate for those last days of winter, but in warm weather inspired, vacation ready hues. Color blocking played a role throughout, from the three-piece ensembles consisting of drawstring trousers, boxy tops, and knee length lapelled coats to the shift type tunics and slim pants combinations. Embellishment free, this minimalistic line was consistent in making relaxed, slouchy fits look pulled together with meticulously thought-out color pairings. Each baggy look was topped off with a solid shade baseball cap, the perfect accessory for a sporty-chic collection.

Palette: The monochromatic and color blocked looks came in the form of teal, cobalt blue, emerald, bubblegum pink, coral, mousey-grey and ivory, navy and black.

Who Should Wear It: Off-duty models, Rita Ora, Solange Knowles.
