Sportmax Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

Sportmax, one of the fashion lines offered by luxury Italian house Max Mara, was yet another brand the spring/summer 2015 collection of which graced Milan Fashion Week spring 2015. Sportmax is loved all around the world for its high quality fabrics and accurate tailoring, as well as for its innovative designs and minimalist, elegant style. The Sportmax spring/summer 2015 collection brought yet another array of modern and fashion-forward clothing pieces with a minimalist flair, which will instantly appeal to fans of the effortless chic style!

The Sportmax spring/summer 2015 collection was designed in neutral tones, mainly based on the contrast between black and white, with occasional deep orange pieces lightening the mood of the collection. Staying true to its minimalist philosophy, the brand presented outfits that were not too patterned or layered, except for several checkered dresses and coats with which the Sportmax parade began. The coats, for which the black-beige combo had been used, had some sense of “raggedness” about them with fringy hems and patches of leather. The same ragged fabric had been used to design tulip skirts and matching loose jackets and sleeveless tops.
Noteworthy were the so-called “belts” that the designers of the Italian brand had prepared to present at Milan Fashion Week. In essence, these were not actually belts but some sort of sleeves that were tied around the waist of models and functioned as belts. Now this, as a fashion phenomenon, is not something new, as you sure remember the coats from Céline’s fall 2014 collection. But for the whole collection to be based on this trend and on making huge knots on skirts and dresses as well? This is something new, isn’t it? So what exactly did Sportmax designers do? Replacing the buttons and zippers you usually see on skirts and dresses, they had made these huge knots on the front of dresses and skirts, which gave them a more textured look.
The last part of the Sportmax spring/summer 2015 collection show was mainly based on the contrast of black and white. We saw checkered knee length A-line skirts, with matching wide sleeve loose jackets, small V-neck black tops with white maxi skirts, off-shoulder all white figure-hiding dresses and so on.

Overall, the dresses and skirts were mostly knee length or longer, all adorned with some sort of knot for emphasis. The necklines of the dresses were rather various as well, ranging from V-necks to off-shoulder ones. The tops remind us of rather worn-out cardigans the sleeves of which, instead of performing their regular function, are used to make ties and knots.
This time Sportmax shoe assortment included mainly high platform open toe shoes that matched in color with the dresses and skirts they were worn with. Bags were rather simple as well, matching with outfits, although we also saw a deep orange handbag with all-black outfits.
Those small, seemingly trivial accents on dresses were what helped to create some sense of ease and relaxation. And they are what we love about Sportmax and Max Mara in general!
