There’s something unique about the way New York’s Max N’ Chester weave a web of global voices into a collection that is so distinctly New York. This season, designers Peter Trainor and Anne Marie Maniego, drew us away to a wistful world , where laissez-faire unfussy frocks were the only thing you’d ever need. The label presented both their men’s and women’s offerings, entitled ‘Paradise’, at New York Fashion Week: Men’s, stringing similar threads of materiality and color between the two collections. Color palettes revolved around the minimalistic-barely dyed shades of ecru, chambrays, khakis and oatmeals acted as the canvas for the traditionally woven Japanese cottons, linens and cotton silks. In the men’s offerings, pajama suits and unstructured blouses took centre stage. On the women’s side, silhouettes were less fluid and more structured in silhouette. Traditional feminine summer wear of skirts, light blazers, shell tops and wide leg trousers were completed in the brands unique amalgamation of luxury and comfort. The pieces were simple in essence, but the combination of the curated fabrics and global threads of influence give them a depth to the comfortable separates.
