Our Story 02 Weekend Max Mara

1983: Weekend Max Mara is born

Launched as an off-shoot of the main Max Mara collection, as its name suggests, Weekend Max Mara offered an authentic wardrobe of sophisticated relaxed pieces and handsome outdoor wear for women seeking to look chic even in their free time. Beyond fashion and seasons, this new and empowering approach to casual wear was immediately well-received by self-confident women, who were increasingly carving out a position for themselves on the evolving social and work scene.

1990: a wanderlust spirit
As Italian fashion continued to gain momentum worldwide, so did Weekend Max Mara. The success and visibility led to its first top-class ad campaigns, starring a gaggle of Supermodels the caliber of Linda Evangelista, Isabella Rossellini, Amber Valletta and Karen Elson: perfect Muses of the lightness and the carefree mood of the brand.
