girls in suits 010 Max Mara

so yeahhhh ive been away busy suiting and booting myself so what better way to return than with my next girls in suits write up!!

always at the top of the chic tailoring game, italian luxury fashion house Max Mara have been designing for women since being established in 1951 // somehow the brand has managed to keep driving forward power dressing for women in an ever changing landscape // cuts are kept modern and sharp whilst still maintaining femininity, something i am always conscious of when power dressing //

ian griffiths, the creative director at max mara has been at the helm for a number of years now // somehow he’s continued with the brands timeless strong woman aesthetic and kept them relevant and forward thinking //

few snippets of my favourite looks from the last few Fall seasons below // too many looks to choose from but here im focusing on suiting predominantly //

hell yeah //

brand watch Napapijri

new fave on my rail has to be italian brand napapijri // perfect drip for the winter season napapijri has been a long standing european name focusing on outdoor apparel and travel bags // the rainforest jacket is now a seasonal staple for streetwear heads and skii-ers alike!

with its slick negative black && white icon Napapijri keep their designs simple this season focussing on sustainability and durability // and a recyclable jacket //

proving theyre relevant as ever, sponsorships with up and coming uk artists is part of their latest media campaign including by best new drum and bass badgirl Sherrelle yeeeeeah G //

the brand has also been teamed up with Martine Rose for collections since AW17 which have been heavily sought after // rose said of the latest SS19 collection “Prints took a variety of inspiration, from early 90s UK garage and sportswear graphics to art deco upholstery fabrics and aerial views of rural landscapes across the American Midwest.”// peep the lookbook below // more info can be found at http://www.napabymartinerose.com/

heliot emil SS20 “torqued ellipse”

ok my obsession with heliot emil is showing no signs of slowing up anytime soon // im still drooling over their looks from the spring summer show in paris last month //

i know i write about them every season but vitor and julius juul continue to experiment so gracefully with tech and fashion // alyx fans will say theyre biting but i honestly think theyre doing something different //

the collection, named and inspired by serra’s sculpture series was a virtual presentation and you can still catch the full show here… http://ss20.heliotemil.com/

technical layers and clever cutaways in shades of industrial monochromes // absolutely love! // the tailoring too is on point // also those metalic pants in looks 2 && 29 are set to be big hype come their release in jan //

rhude for maxfield LA pop-up

california streetwear brand Rude has teamed up with Maxfield LA for a second pop-up clothing drop // i must say these are probably my fave rude clothes yet // im a sucker for bandana print atm // CANT STOP //

following the initial team up back in july which saw Rude founder Rhuigi Villaseñor working with maxfield we now have an exclusive fall drop at the store // focusing more on outerwear this collection has a couple of percys //

notably the bandana print jacket is a bit of me!!! also the allover multicoloured dyed denim fit is SO GOOD //

rhude can sometimes miss the mark for me with the ultra branded in-your-face shit but these bits are nice //

no news on availability elsewhere but if its anything like last time the line will become available at the usual boutiques in due course // SSense, Union, selfridges, 424 etc…
