Shop for a good cause at Christian Louboutin and Kate Spade New York; Longines’ Symphonette sports a new look; the Manuela coat by Max Mara gets the pastel treatment; Pomellato’s Nudo Solitaire goes bigger and brighter; and the debut shoe collection fashion insiders have been waiting for is finally here.
Fashion thrives on change, but updating a signature requires a light hand – especially when it’s a well-loved essential. Max Mara’s Manuela camel-hair coat has kept the same cosy, oversized silhouette and season-less wrap design that’s continually won over fans since its 1998 debut. Its Pre-fall updates are spot on this season’s colour obsession – sorbet shades of pale pink, yellow, mint green and light blue that work as fun neutrals – but the enduring appeal remains. Exclusive to the Mandarin Gallery store, they’re also limited, with as few as under 10 pieces per hue.
