Max Mara

Share This

I always thought of Max Mara as one of the smaller luxury brands, but with over 2,000 stores in 90 countries, and designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Dolce & Gabbana having worked for them, I'm surely wrong.

Achille Maramotti founded the brand in Italy after the Second World War, with Mara being a shortened version of his surname and Max apparently inspired by a Count Max known for being seldom sober but always stylish! Max Mara clothes were soon to get a reputation as stylish beyond short-lived trends, meaning that buying them was a good long-term investment.

Indeed, Maramotti did rather well with investments, finishing his life as director or deputy director of four financial establishments, helming a group that owns 23 different labels and 38 companies, and listed as one of the top 300 richest men in the world.

Also an art lover, his private collection can now be seen by appointment in its own museum in the Italian countryside.

40 passages

By Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

You are invited to visit Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s exposition, in which he unveils some of his best new creations that were made specially to celebrate his career's fourteenth anniversary.

Held at the Mannerheim Gallery, until July 31st, 2017, the exhibition presents 40 passages that the artist has modelled and painted, with a utopian and dreamlike style. This exhibition of drawings and collages presents 40 women in a passage to the unknown.

Through his 40-year-fashion-career, de Castelbajac has managed to tell stories through his various works, something that significantly contributed to making him one of the most renowned fashion designers today.

As for the content of this display, it features unique “human paintings” in the series of drawings in which the clothes, bodies, and skins have been appropriated.

After using art in his fashion creations, today this creative artist puts fashion into his art, emphasizing on how these two fields are actually interrelated.
