Anjelica Huston was MaxMara's muse for Spring/Summer. Models were styled in bucket hats, tulip skirts and double-breasted cropped trousers, channelling an ad campaign Huston starred in for the brand in 1971.
It isn't the first glimpse of a seventies hippy-ish aesthetic this season, but the Woodstock vibes were tamped down a little with touches of what this label does so well - slick and citified, simple luxury. There was a long, heather grey, suede coat so fine it looked like silk, and yet more sheer and satin blouses with pussybow neck-ties.
Ruched waist and pleated peasant-style dresses printed with naive florals were styled with matching print boots and long cardigans and quilted coats in an approximation of seventies pastoral. This was toughened up with utilitarian touches on blouses and dresses - tight pleats and pockets, double-faced elasticated waistbands.
The MaxMara customer will appreciate the prettiness of pansy prints, but she'll appreciate more the modern makeover those florals had. It's fine to wear flowers in spring when you're channelling Anjelica.
