Max Mara’s muse was no doubt Monroe‘s picture taken by George Barris way back in 1962 of her clutching a coat fetchingly, and its sensual overtones (couldn’t ever have been otherwise with that lady).

From which we picked a dark number for you with tiny dots flaunting bold foliage motifs on one side and clinched by a satin belt... Read More

Slick glamour highlighted an array of statement outerwear for both day and night. We select a shocking pink number featuring a wave of pleats moving across the chest while a sparkling fabric closely hugs... Read More

The collection culminates... Read More
