In the upcoming season Max Mara takes inspiration from heroines of Ancient Greece: Penelope and Circe.
Anne-Marie Beretta was the brand’s designer in the 1980’s; she was always fascinated by the potent symbolism of the classical world.
The Beretta archive yields a strong-shouldered silhouette, asymmetric pareo skirts, press studs, and stylized utilitarian detailing. The collection pays tribute to the legendary ‘queen of rainwear’ with a ne plus ultra offering in double-coated heat sealed jersey and a poplin trenchcoat, perfect in form, proportion and detail.
In her one shouldered top, a pleated dress girded with a rope belt, or that indispensable raincoat, Max Mara imagines a modern Olympian armed for any eventuality -roiling oceans, burning deserts, a hunt for a multiheaded sea monster or just a rainy trip across town to the office.
