The camel coat embodies the understated chic championed by Max Mara since 1951. And season after season the house’s subtle riffs on a fall favorite prove its infinite variety. This month Max Mara upgrades camel to couture levels with double-faced cashmere, almost entirely sewn by hand, part of the brand’s limited-edition Atelier collection. With a sloped trapeze back providing ’50s swing and a ’90s minimalist sleek up front, this coat is timeless—to the max.
Max Mara “Creta” cashmere coat, $6,100; 212-879-6100.
