Max Mara

Elegant and timeless, Max Mara is renowned in its native Italy for its exquisite craftsmanship and luxurious fabrics. Founded in 1951 by designer Achille Maramotti, the brand went on to employ some of the world’s most famous designers, including Karl Lagerfeld and Dolce & Gabbana, but remains family-owned to this day. Known for its coats and gentle, sculptural tailoring, the house produces beautifully cut wrap coats, cashmere sweaters and feminine dresses in a sophisticated colour palette – tobacco, navy, cream and rich reds often feature – that exude elegance and grace.
