Peeking over hems and popping over collars, Weekend Max Mara’s Chatmise collection is an ode to its favorite feline friends. Mysterious and agile, this refined and elegant animal is the quintessential tribute to the luxury of time. That’s why this subtle animal has been the subject of women’s admiration for generations, and why Weekend Max Mara chose him to star in its newest capsule collection debuting at Milan Fashion Week.
The Chatmise collection is made up of seven similar but separate pieces in white, blue chambray and bordeaux colours, each with a different approach to the mischievous campaign star. Realized with cotton poplin in a range of fits and sensibilities, embroidery and appliqué touches provide just the right romantic detailing to complete this winsome line.
The first piece is a classic cut men’s shirt, adorned with tiny lolling cats curling around the collar, a subdued piece with just a hint of embroidery. The second is a top — with a bicolor empire waist, silhouettes of kissing kitties and a delicate ruffle around the collar. Richer is a loose fit blouse buttoned in the front, featuring just a hint of floral embroidering on the placket. A pair of friendly twin felines roll around with roses on the white bib of a blue top, like a fabulous feline garland. An a-line carré blouse has a ring of roses embroidered around the shoulders and a ruffled crew neck, for a sweetly feminine effect. Our little friend finds himself dotted across a summery, sleeveless polo, positioned mid-fall, as if he’s tumbling loosely from the collar. Finally, the stand out item of the collection is a trompe l’oeil shirtdress with kimono sleeves and an appliqué couple of cats.
This playful, lazy, noble icon catches the feeling of the perfect Weekend Max Mara: relaxing stylish, easy and languid. The collection will be available at Weekend Max Mara stores starting from June 2017.
