10 saturated, sparkly and stripey looks from Max Mara Fall 2016

Updated on June 16 2016

When it comes to standing out in a crowd, Max Mara’s Fall Winter 2016 collection, with its skinny silhouettes, seventies flares and maxis is just the way to do it without going overly bohemian. Instead, with hints of 1920s Art Deco styling (the symmetrical, gold-toned set spoke for itself), the gold lamé maxi coats, sequinned short jumpsuits and tank tops that opened the show gave the impression of modern flapper girls. The boiler suits that followed, were a subtle nod to pioneering women who took jobs in draughty workshops alongside their male counterparts.

The main theme throughout the collection was Bauhaus; a time when a passion for art required coats with large pockets (into which budding artists would stuff their paintbrushes). On the runway, this translated into oversized striped pockets and leather shoulder straps.

Shades of grey and the brand’s classic camel colouring were also on the runway, but the interesting twist was the accompanying vibrant hues — not what you would typically expect from a Fall collection. Plush shearling coats (guaranteed faux fur) were coloured forest green, burnt orange or cerulean, while jumpsuits featured baby pink shorts with a clashing green sequin top. Cashmere sweaters also featured stripes in different colours.

The clashing loud colours and vibrant stripes are eye-catching to say the least, here are our 10 favourite looks to wear out and stand out.

A sparkly pullover in gold and black gives this top an Art Deco feel.


So many clashing colours had us wanting to look everywhere (in a good way). Stripes keep this look consistent.


Colour blocking takes centrestage in this gorgeous aureolin (cobalt yellow) coat with malachite and black striped lapels.


This Persian green shearling is so vibrant it doesn’t need too much colour blocking, so the muted baby pink trousers works perfectly.


Sometimes, standing out doesn’t necessarily require a crazy outfit. This subtle, striped knitted cardigan says it all.


But if you’re someone who loves vibrant colours you could try out this cerulean faux fur coat.


We always love a good power suit on a woman, the baby pink colour and the pocket details keeps this look unique but not overpowering.

Or just go bold with vibrant emerald two-piece.

Max Mara’s classic neutrals like these nude trousers also look amazing when paired a sequin, striped jumper.


Last but not least, we would never (ever) say no to a statement coat.
