Published

Max Mara promised a collection for "strong determined women... Like Emmeline Pankhurst." While Stylist isn't sure what the suffrage movement would make of modern fashion shows, we're positive this season's collection will become a huge best seller.

Famous for its coats, the label showed long cocooning outerwear in black, caramel, camel and the season's favourite neutral - khaki. The military influence was plain to see with panels of leather, air force jumpsuits and great coats all making an appearance. For evening, slinky striped jersey dresses and wide leg trousers looked chic while in a season where your hat will be the most important accessory you own, Maxmara's peaked Night Porter-style caps will be our first choice.
