Max Mara Fall 2015

by Dena Silver

Marilyn Monroe was a chic point of reference for Max Mara this season. Specifically, the image of the buxom blonde icon lolling about on the beach in a chunky sweater, shot by George Barris in 1962, was the inspiration for Fall. That aesthetic was lifted directly from her look and adapted for the runway were messy bedhead locks, cat eye glasses, and silhouettes that emphasized the feminine shape. Gigi Hadid made three catwalk appearances here: opening the show in one of the house’s signature camel coats, donning a grey skirt and sweater combo towards the show’s middle, and finishing it all off in a yellow version of her first look. The rest of the collection featured plenty of perfectly executed outerwear, from a bomber jacket in camel wool to a satin quilted number with even more fur details. A slew of pencil skirts and proper sweaters kept the tone feeling ladylike with a vintage touch. Charming, non?
