Coat Ogling

Max Mara Coats Book

It’s getting pretty cold here in the UK, and during January it’s Coat Month on IndieSew and Fancy Tiger Crafts are hosting a coat sew-along. Regardless, I’m resisting the urge to sew a coat as I don’t really need a new one (not that I normally let that interfere with my sewing plans), but that hasn’t stopped me from ogling outerwear.

I found this lovely book of Max Mara coats in the library at work. The book was published to accompany a travelling exhibition and features some gorgeous coats from Max Mara’s history, from its founding in the 50s until the 2000s.

If you’re also resisting coat making, one of these might just push you over the edge.

  1. Those photos were a treat – thanks. Looks like they had some maxis – that would be drama, drama.

  2. Ooooooh I’ve always loved Maxmara, what a lovely book to have!

  3. wow, stunning. A total inspiration!

  4. Goodness, these are sublime. I’m especially smitten with the red mid-century number. Chic, elegant and oh-so-gorgeous. Thank you for sharing these images, lovely lady.
