For Resort 2017, Max Mara gets inspired by Miss Grace Jones, a self-fashioned icon who knows all there is to know about working the dynamic between masculine woman and feminine man.

David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, Klaus Nomi and Lauren Bacall show up in the collection, alongside Jerry Hall and Gia Carangi, with whom Jones started out as a model.

Miss Jones championed razor sharp tailoring, and so does Max Mara.

Goude’s unforgettable images of Grace spark off peppy postmodern colour combos- ebony, tobacco, coral, salmon and teal worked in precise peacoats, sleek lizard belts and voluminous knits that recall thousands of tiny flower petals.
