MFW: Max Mara's back-to-basics Fall 2009 collection

Max_mara fall 2009 milan fashion week MILAN -- Sometimes basic is the best a design house can do. Such is the case at Max Mara, the outerwear company turned fashion brand that, over the last few seasons, has had some disastrous flirtations with dropped-crotch dodi pants and sequined jumpsuits.

For fall, the collection turned back to tailoring, beginning with the perfect, belted camel coat worn with a fur bonnet. Pencil skirts, pea coats with cuffed short sleeves and classic vented blazers followed. Not the kind of thing that gets the heart pumping, but the kind of thing everyone needs a little of in their closets.
