MaxMara Spring 2012

Celebrities fell in love with MaxMara this year, so I was eager to see which pieces they could possibly be picking from the Spring 2012 collection.

On a colour palette of neutral shades of sand, coffee, aqua blue, gold and ivory plus white and black, MaxMara presented mostly lightweight daywear separates with gold hardware accents.

We saw cocoon dresses, tight-fitted colour-block knit dresses, leather shorts, rompers with clear panels, bomber jackets, cropped leather jackets and strapless jumpsuits from this sporty, utilitarian collection.

I particularly loved the drop-waist dress with a leather panel which seemed to be held together with gold accents that looked like staples. This look was paired with pedal pushers as many pieces were.

If you are looking for something which is simple and chic that doesn’t follow the Spring 2012 plastic or floral trend, then these pieces would be perfect for you.

Key accessories included satchels, lace-up wedges and shades.

With a sunkissed glow, the models sported twisted dreadlocks.

Favourites: Aqua blue crepe dress with panelled center and sand drop-waist dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Zoe Saldana, Maggie Q, Anne Hathaway, Carey Mulligan, Ginnifer Goodwin, Tilda Swinton, Michelle Monaghan, Elle Macpherson, Karolina Kurkova and Diane Kruger

    I prefered last years collection. Also, in your celebrities you se earing this collection, I am wondering why you have chosen to not include Tess Daly, snce she wore two of the jumpsuits, both almsot exactly the same, and the orange top and trouser looks from this years collection?

      I know she wore 2 pieces from Spring 2011, but don’t see her in this collection, just like I didn’t see her in the Fall 2011 collection which she never wore.
