Ashley Hicks sublimed “Eccentric Mania” with a great installation, an homage to eclectic style. Inspired by the relaxed, edgy chic of aristocrats, Hicks takes the faded splendor of an English country house as his starting point. Pavilions and obelisks, like those found in the gardens, are recurring motifs, as is an ornate floral print reinterpreted from the wool wall hangings in these grand homes. Tradition is reimagined with Hicks’ signature idiosyncratic touch. Seamlessly blending the old and new, ‘stone’ prints scanned are from Hicks’ painted designs. The ‘fabric’ print uses his own photograph of antique stamped wool. Graphic lines on the floor echo the collection’s plaids and tartans.

This season, opposites attract with the FW21 MAX&Co. capsule collection “Eccentric Mania” is a celebration of the quintessentially mix-and-match approach to style. Plush velvet dresses are worn with stompy boots and extra-long scarves, tweed and tartan are remixed with leopard print, crystal embellishment dials up the drama on neat cable knit sweaters. Here, the refined and the rebellious, tradition and modernity, ease and impact happily co-exist.

In the Philippines, Max & Co. is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc.,and is located at  Rustan’s Makati and 158 Designer’s Boulevard, Greenbelt 5. Visit, subscribe to our SSI LIFE YouTube Channel, and follow @ssilifeph on Instagram and Facebook for more information.
