Luxury Italian fashion house Max Mara was established in 1951 and is credited with being one of the brands that pioneered the concept of ready-to-wear fashion. Despite all the decades that Max Mara has been in fashion it remains a family business and this has enabled it to retain its chic and distinctive aesthetic. It has also expanded out into various other ranges, including Sportmax, Pennyblack, Marella and Weekend Max Mara. The Weekend Max Mara diffusion line embraces laid-back style 'it's the perfect off peak wardrobe.
