Can we agree that most things drawing inspiration from the 1950’s are stunning and classic? Now can we just admit that anything resembling or inspired by Marilyn Monroe automatically wins?
Max Mara’s 2015 pre-fall line is simply perfection. The press release eloquently explains that the inspiration for this line came from the pictures that George Barris took of Marilyn at the beach in 1962. The two items she wore at that shoot, an oversized cardigan and a well-worn blanket, set the tone for the show’s colors, textures, and also the draping of the pieces.
This line obviously stemmed from Marilyn’s beauty but was rooted in her intelligence. The slightly see-through sweaters and form-fitting pencil skirts are balanced out by the cat-eye glasses and the bookish loafers.
I love that this line is not only beautiful, but that it also has something lovely to say about its muse.
