Max Mara and Sportmax: Remember Annie Hall? Annie worked a slouchy men’s wear look to perfection, almost always anchored by a vest. Well, if the team at Max Mara has its way, the vest may rise again. Its spring collection revolved almost exclusively around vests that came paired with everything — absolutely everything —from long, slim skirts to shorts rolled at the leg to cropped pants to pretty lacy dresses.
But Max Mara’s latter-day Annie isn’t content only with classic mannish versions borrowed from her boyfriend or brother — if either were to wear vests anymore, that is. She’s looking for variety, which this collection delivered in droves. To mention the tiny vests cropped to bikini-top proportions, the slouchy ones, those with cargo pockets or cut in seersucker, pinstripes or lace is to describe only a fraction of the lot. But vests aside, there were some lovely pieces which complemented the array — a purple snake trenchcoat, lacy tops, silk skirts and a series of floaty chiffons.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
