It has been a minute since we have featured this luxury plus size brand on TCF! Years ago, I had the chance to go to Italy alongside 11 other influencers to experience the brand in person. And today? The Marina Rinaldi x Sara Battaglia Fall capsule collection, named “Absolutely Flawless” is one to look at. We are excited to share with you the latest plus size collaboration that is definitely inspired!
This is not the first collaboration from Marina Rinaldi, the sister brand of Max Mara. The brand has most recently tapped Marco de Vincenzo for a collaboration and has also had other designer capsule collections, including Tsumori Chisato, Stella Jean, Fausto Puglisi, Roksanda Ilincic and Antonio Berardi.
For this Fall capsule collection, Marina Rinaldi brought in Milan-based fashion designer Sara Battaglia, who recently partnered with the brand with their handbags. With this capsule collection, we get high-end designer plus size fashion that brings glamor, drama, vibrant hues, bold silhouettes.
“The ultra-glamorous style of the designer in a selection of undisputed must-haves.”
Taking a cue from the 2004 George Michael song and video, “Flawless (Go to the City),” we get a collection that channels the diversity of models in age, height, race, and body shape- all elements that go to the core of the collection and brand.
If you have been looking for statement pieces that will breathe life into your wardrobe, then the Marina Rinaldi x Sara Battaglia Capsule Collection will deliver it to you! Explore options from “evening gowns to tracksuits in abstract prints and electric colors.”
What is exciting about this collaboration is that there are many pieces in this collection that we have not had available to us in plus sizes. The “Absolutely Flawless” Marina Rinaldi x Sara Battaglia capsule collection gives us plus size fashion that is unapologetic, celebratory, and exciting to wear.
Even more exciting? The Marina Rinaldi x Sara Battaglia Capsule Collection debuted during Milan Fashion Week and is currently in stores! If you are in California, they have their location in the Beverly Center area and off Madison Ave, in New York!
On Inspiration for the Marina Rinaldi x Sara Battaglia Capsule Collection
In an interview with WWD, Sara Battaglia shares her inspiration for the “Absolutely Flawless” collection:
“Also, I wanted the collection to express joy,” she said. “You can see life in pink with these pair of sunglasses with a thick white frame and contrasting pink lenses.”
She continues to share in the interview, “I’ve always played with proportions, and I like to contrast them using unexpected materials… The purpose of my work is to continue to celebrate the femininity and beauty of women. What in the past would’ve been considered flaws, I now highlight as strengths and qualities that should no longer be hidden but accentuated. I find anything too perfect boring.”
You can NOW shop the collection online, if you have not been to their site lately. The collection is available up to an Italian size 33 or a US size 24.
