Designer to know: Weekend Max Mara

When one thinks of Max Mara, luxe wool, supple leather and rich fur probably come to mind. But Max Mara is much more than that. 

Launched in 1984, Weekend Max Mara is the off duty defusion line of Max Mara Collection. Originally designed as a casual and outdoor, weekend-ready collection it has since evolved into a well rounded, sporty yet sophisticated line complete with loads of color, prints and easy to wear and versatile silhouettes. It's filled with all the signature fabrics one finds in Collection, beautiful wool, leather, silk and down, but with a youthful twist.

We've pulled together a few of our favorite Pre-Fall pieces - we have a soft spot for their outerwear - that are available now.

If you've been reading the blog, you've probably noticed our love for Weekend.  Don't let the name fool you, these pieces will take you straight from the office, to date night or even a weekend at the coast.  It's an all inclusive collection filled with wardrobe staples that you won't tire of.

MAX MARA HANDBAGS AT MERCANTILE

Max Mara is a favorite of ours at Mercantile, and the handbags are no exception.

NAPA SHOPPING BAG IN BLACK AND ICE

Made in Italy by master leather craftsmen with the softest leather and sophisticated metal details; their bags are exquisitely tailored with the same attention to detail as their Ready-to-Wear collection.  They are extremely versatile and will easily transition into the Spring season.  

MAX MARA FACTORY AND HEADQUARTERS IN THE 1960'S.

The fashion house was started in 1951 by Achille Maramotti with the goal to create high quality manufactured clothing inspired by the French yet remaining thoroughly Italian.  This concept was new and innovative in Italy, where clothing was still entirely hand crafted.

Mr. Maramotti strived to make clothing and accessories that were precise, clean-cut with decisive lines and an essential addition to a woman's wardrobe.  It's safe to say that he succeeded!
