The Max Mara woman is a self-made queen. Britannic style with an Italian accent. Authentic and sometimes eccentric, it’s been a recurring theme at Max Mara right from the start and it’s the backbone of this anniversary collection. New must-haves include the oversized bomber jackets and "thornproof” jackets in incredibly soft alpaca wool with utility pockets. To be worn with kilts, thick socks and sturdy shoes. And to complete the urban-county mix, there are impeccably tailored suits in tattersall checks, chic graphic tartans, oversize aran knits, velvet elbow patches and jaunty jabots in organza.
