Max Mara, Spring/Summer '09 (scroll down to read the review)
The jumpsuit is rapidly becoming the essential item of the season, popping up at Missoni, Dsquared2, Ferragamo and Gucci. Some of the best were at Max Mara, where they were shown with jackets as a new take on the pantsuit or just on their own.
Done long they had an overall feel with carpenter pant detailing and bib with straps that twisted into a racer back; short they mimicked shirt dresses. Cut in washed silk they had an easy sportswear look. Short oversized tunics were done in poplin or washed silk.
