An experiment with color, fabrics and shapes! This is probably what the Max Mara spring/summer 2014 collection presented at Milan Fashion Week is mainly made of. Minimalist, perfectly polished, yet charming and fashionable, these Max Mara pieces are made for wearing to any event, from office and formal meetings to dates and special occasions.
Starting with fabrics, we can mention the wide variety of different materials, used to create the desired effect. Among these, there are linen, sheer, double-face cashmere, lamé and so on.
Touching upon the part of colors, we notice shades of cream, white, violet, navy blue, orange and enticing black. What refers to the shapes, they carry the least proportion of difference as comparing with other elements. There are light coats, pencil skirts, tee dresses, cloaks and manly jackets used to make the monochrome combinations.
What was especially interesting about the Max Mara spring/summer 2014 collection is that similar shapes are made using different and absolutely diverse color overtones, as if emphasizing the utmost role of color background for a garment. Among these combinations, the most vivid ones were the suit-shirt-skirt combos and triplets of suit-shirt-skirt, first carrying cream and white shades, then shifting to stunning violet and reaching grass green in the end. A resourceful calming effect was used after bright violet and green, putting similarly shaped garments of grey shades just after the bright ones. On the other hand, the grey overtones gave the outfits a wonderful touch of elegance and chic. Nearly the same color pairs were used in case of cute rompers and tee dresses as well. These experiments do not finish up by this. Another way of surprising the fans of experimental mishmash were the silver and golden lamé used with some pencil skirts and tops.
The honor of being the final touch of the line was handed to cute headscarves used with many coat combinations. Looking at these pieces, you realize it’s going to be cold outside, but you’re not going to feel that. At the same time, you are going to be the most fabulous lady of spring. This is what the Max Mara spring/summer 2014 collection is made for!
