Max Mara put Halima Aden on its runway last season, and invited the activist to walk its spring/summer 2018 catwalk again. She returned, of course, serving as a timely reminder that the runway is a place to celebrate diversity. Aden was clad in a denim ensemble that highlighted the depth of Max Mara’s offerings. Sure, the Italian brand’s camel coat remains its claim to fame, but it also does a fine job of creating clothes for the sophisticated urbanite.The show opened with neutrals on smart suits and sublime coats before bursts of florals on trench coats and dresses took over. Accents of ’90s minimalist tailoring were present, seen on sleek pencil skirts and pants, while formal blazers were reimagined in translucent organza. In short: Quality classics that were made to last.
