Serious but never severe, minimal but never simple, fragile but never weak.

Experiments with quirk cuts and expanding on extremely simple ideas define the MAX.TAN language.

Maximising on minimalistic ideas, this complex language results in details that are sometimes blown out of proportions. Much of the label’s attention is paid to tailoring and draping while creating unexpected silhouettes and austere moods. The garments play with volume, modified shape and use, masculine, feminine, oversize, undersized, deconstruction, reconstruction and transformation.

XY is not a conformation, but a seamless flow between opposites. MAX.TAN’s Fall/Winter 2015-16 collection presents a concept not just simply of women in menswear, or men in frocks; it is a collection that reconstructs her boyfriend’s wardrobe, a state of gender neutralizing. 
 
The interpretation of the folds of pocket squares in men’s jackets, a tunic featuring asymmetrical folds and skirts incorporating origami elements. Geometrical draping and robe dressing form a collapsing silhouette for the collection, spliced-tailoring on centre-back and sides on traditionally mascoline fabrication of will and felt, e.g. floating handkerchief cuts combined with strict shirts.
