Max Mara MFW fall 2017



A close friend queried… How boring the world would be if we only saw "pretty clothes"… at this juncture in the fashion compendium, pretty clothes are  welcomed sights after the travesties of New York and the absurdities of London and lest us forget the insane rambling collection of that faux designer, faux intellectual AM at Gucci.

Decades ago, I was told that the best Italian sportswear came from Max Mara and well aside from the virtual absence of sportswear, Max Mara certainly delivers on that decades old statement. Yes the world would be boring if pretty was the only adjective we could affix to collections but ponder this for a moment… when and where was the last time you saw beautiful clothes on beautiful women who were impeccably groomed and accessorized walking down a runway.

Then of course you must consider that these clothes are actually wearable, chic, slick and urbane… quel horreur…no latest and greatest, no esoterica  to prepare you or explain  the presentation .. these are unabashedly pretty clothes…  yes, yes I know some will say my god you are so boring and so are the clothes  ... call me what you will but what I see are clothes that women will actually want and wear. These are city clothes or if dissected, they are country clothes but no matter as they are classy, tasteful and timeless. Ill take some boring and pretty when faced with trying to “unsee” the folly that has come before !

Consider these as simple clothes for confident women who don’t want to look like Halloween, a fashion victim or some thrift store reject.
