MaxMara: The top tier took their thronesâ€”aka, front row seatsâ€”at MaxMara today. The who’s who included Anna, (our first spotting of the fashion queen at the Milan shows), Andre Leon Talley holding court in a very Milanese all-black ensemble and a pair of chic shades, plus Stefano Tonchi, Carine Roitfeld, Stephen Gan, Glenda Bailey, Robbie Myers, Cindy Weber Cleary, Cindi Leive, Jay Fielden, Giovanna Battaglia, Natalie Joos, and Paloma Faith. We could go on, but let’s get down to the clothes. We may be in Milan, but chez MaxMara the references were all about New York. The show notes lauded Gotham as “the ideal stage for innovation and incomparable style icons, fashion, and contemporary art.” The look was pure minimalism, right down to the models’ sparse makeup.
Stella McCartney stayed dry at the presentation for her adidas by Stella McCartney line in London earlier today. Showing at a warehouse that she turned into a gym, real athletes showed off the sportswear collection instead of models. It was the last event for London Fashion Week, as editors and buyers are off to Milan where Gucci, Dsquared2, and Alberta Ferretti are some of the big names showing tomorrow.
