The more effortlessly chic of the Max Mara orbit of brands, Sportsmax, conjured Renoir, Jackson Pollock and even Rothko in its fall winter collection that was doused in colorful impressionist and expressionist-like prints, as well as animal prints and skins.
Coats were embroidered with multi-colored mohair threads that were brushed and teased, while woven jacquard prints were enhanced with playful paint splattering.
Leopard prints were clashed together or matched with black, while a variety of python prints and colors were fashioned into wrap dresses, slit-leg skirts and blazers.
Abstract accents like metal and perspex cuboid heals and toes were fused into two-toned leather boots. Quirky accents like stark white leather-tips on boots and leather forearms fused onto the sleeves of leopard printed and luxurious velvet evening suits infused the collection with a hint of unconscious inhibition.
Dazzling with a real innovative sartorial edge, evening wear was punctuated with dresses in two main styes: high waisted, bell shaped and calf-length looks synched at the waist.
The silhouettes were impressive, so much so, that Sportmax really could have done away with the art-as-fashion theme and let women alone inspire art instead.
