Milan fashion week: Max Mara presents neutrals with playful bursts of colour
MILAN (AP) - Max Mara has clean looks for next summer that are alternatively playful and workaday.
The women's collection, presented on Thursday, the second day of Milan Fashion Week, had an austere quality reflected in the monochrome neutral shades and simple lines that by contrast lent emphasis to playful touches: layers of sheer fabrics, lame shimmers, and youthful romper or jumpsuit silhouettes.
For the urban professional, there were straight pencil skirts and spaghetti strapped sheaths all landing discreetly below the knee. Max Mara topped them with sleek button-less jackets, varying in length.
There were few trousers, a trend emerging this season in Milan.
