The beautiful Jamaican 80’s muse, Grace Jones, with her unique style, is the inspiration for the Max Mara Resort 2017 collection. The creative director Ian Griffiths said he used Grace’s biography I’ll Never write My Memoirs to create the collection. In the book, she mentions some of her inspirations icons like Marlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall, Klaus Nomi and David Bowie.
I simply love everything: skirts and dresses in mid height (ultra chic in my opinion), broad and structured shoulders (80’s, right?), the jumpsuit and hoodie that where Grace’s trademark, waist marked with wide belts, lots of black, white and red, in addition to salmon and mint colors. Very unusual, but everything matched very well.
I can only say one thing: Wonderful collection !!
