A classic British brand, which produces many of their items up to size 50. Rarely hypertrendy, but has its own distinct DNA with inspiration from ethnic patterns and silhouettes. More often than not, good quality, that is worth the money. >>
The Italian designer brand from Max Mara-House. Solid materials, perfect fit and often with well-chosen details from the season’s trends. Classic style, often to women who are 30 +.

Marks & Spencer
