The max factor Jungle fever has taken hold of Max Mara’s S/S17 collection, which draws on the work of the late Brazilian Modernist architect Lina Bo Bardi. Classic silhouettes have been given a sporty Rio-inspired twist with palm prints and animal motifs emblazoned on jodhpur leggings and bodysuits in athleisure fabrics such as jerseys and nylons. If that sounds all too adventurous, the house has stayed true to its signature styles too: think crisp shirts, wide-legged trousers, belted suits and trench coats in shades of cream and taupe. 19-21 Old Bond Street, W1S, maxmara.com
