Never Too Late

I wasn’t friends with the Maramottis when they had their 60th anniversary two years ago. If I had been I would have traveled to Reggio, where they store the archival Max Mara and Sportmax collections, and turned the place upside down. And if I had been in Reggio two years ago, it would not have been under construction like it is today. So alas, I am a couple of years too late but it’s a celebratory event nonetheless because I got to wear and shoot some really special dresses from the Vanity collection of the early 70s while I was in Milan. I mixed everything with pieces from the recent Fall/Winter collection, i. e. all the black you see and I think I took it all out of context a little – you know me and my love for touristy stuff… I’m sure we’ll do something bigger when the warehouse has been rebuilt, but until then, here’s a little taste of what I will get my hands on…

All clothes (vintage and new), black hat and white strappy sandals by Max Mara and Sportmax. Speckled wedges by Loeffler Randall x Suno; African print slippers by Liam Fahy; Neon red slides by Adidas; White platform sandals by Prada; Red sunglasses by Wild Fox. Nail art by Mei at Ciao Manhattan.

    These photos are splendid. Love how you mixed everything. You have a real eye and your dressing is a real talent. You look best when smiling. Awesome shots too kudos to the photographer.
