Chic Report: MaxMara’s design team didn’t stray far from the brand’s tradition of impeccably tailored, contemporary pieces, creating a collection full of sharp looks befitting sophisticated grown-ups. Constructed from sensual fabrics like alpaca, cashmere, and wool, standout looks included a structured grey skirt with a pin-tucked flower detail, sleek leather separates, soft twin-sets, and a swingy, winter white coat with matching skirt. For evening, the looks were sparkly and lean, with draped jersey gowns and glittery knits making a strong showing. “MaxMara delivered what women want--a classic tweed suit or beautiful cardigan,” said Hilary Alexander. “Some of those cashmere knits set off fireworks!”
