For the upcoming season, MaxMara has released a new collection of evening wear under their Elegante range. Our editor’s choices, carefully curated, offer the highlights from this collection for your chance to shine this holiday season.MAX MARA  ELEGANTE_PT11804_004_$23680 Several themes ran through this collection: the first, ruby red, saw a strapless evening gown with beautifully spaced boxed pleats. Perfect for recitals or other formal occasions, the contrast between the finely pleated bodice and the cascading skirt creates a flattering and timeless silhouette. Alternately, a brighter red dress with a petal-detailed neckline would be a vibrant and distinctive outfit for drinks out on the town, with minimal accessories needed. MAXMARA_PT11806_02_$10080 Lace also made an appearance, both as appliques and all-over patterns on bodices and tops. On a knee-length sheath with a colour-blocking cobalt top and white skirt, it became a waistband creating a nipped-in effect. Similarly, on a midi gown with a reversed colour pattern, its effect on the gown’s lower hemline was to reinforce its mermaid silhouette. MAX MARA ELEGANTE_PT11752_004_$9780 Jumpsuits; while embraced by contemporary designers, have always been a classic. Here, the Elegante range offers four different options. Of these, the peplum jumpsuit and monochrome black outfits are particularly chic. The black lace bodice with peplum hem is bang-on trend and lightly skims the waist, creating an hourglass effect. With a sheer scalloped hem and ‘hidden’ colour, the effect is of sensual yet demure sophistication. With different accessories, this could be easily taken from day to night, making this a versatile piece to have. MAXMARA_PT11761_01_$22180 On the other end of the spectrum, champagne and pale spring green also appeared. A champagne dress in a princess silhouette, with its gemstone-appliqued florals, would be perfect for any banquet or formal occasion. The pale green sheath in a more subtle pattern could be dressed up or down depending on occasion, and is a timeless cut to suit all ages.
