Max Mara Spring 2013 Runway Review

It may have been a bit heavy (fur!) for a spring collection, but there was much to love in Max Mara's safari-inspired lineup this season. In keeping with the season's dominating silhouette, cuts were loose, and at times oversized, giving a casual sportswear feel to the nonetheless sophisticated looks.

Max Mara is known for its khaki hues, particularly camel, so it was fitting that the collection stuck with those. Most looks had distinctive shoulder details — notably epaulets — that gave a slightly "80s power woman" feel to the collection. V-neck rolled-up sleeve blouses, utilitarian jumpers, patterned skirts, gaucho pants, and oversized trenches were among the season's standouts.
