We love greatly inspiring collaboration between Milanese fine art photographer Micol Sabbadiniâ€™s dreamy images and Weekend Max Mara. Chicly understated silhouettes and luxuriously rendered fabrics, the capsule collectionâ€™s Mediterranean vibe seems second nature to the newfound collaborators. Photographs, taken in stolen moments during travels, of whitewashedhouses, lazily drifting boats, intricate mosaics and luscious Mediterranean peonies are thoughtfully collaged or transformed into stunning patterns by the artist. The twelve pieces featured in the collection were designed with long, carefree days in mind. The images were designed specifically for the cut of three of these garments, treating each Piece like one of Sabbadiniâ€™s artworks.
