Fashion director Grazia Malagoli reworked Wall Street’s sartorial staple — the pinstripe suit — with a feminine touch for Sportmax’s resort collection, presented in a small runway show after that of Max Mara. Taking her cues from Ron Jude’s photographs of American businessmen in the Nineties, Malagoli worked several riffs on the banker look, from a pinstripe handkerchief dress to a chic coat made from leather strips that mimicked the motif. A print of mashed numbers, which read abstract from afar, added to the vibe. After all, Wall Streeters know a thing or two about number crunching.
