Shereen Shabnam


Unlike the Ramadan last year, this year I am actually taking my long dresses and Ramadan appropriate attire out for the lovely Arabian nights out in Bedouin tents. But to add a bit of jazz, i headed to Max to see their latest Summer/Ramadan 2016 collection and found some great pieces perfect for a night out and to pray in post iftar events.


This year, Max fashion pieces feature a mix of brights, pastels and earthy neutrals. After several seasons of monochrome prints, this seasons womenswear returns to a refreshing feminine vibe. Pink sits firmly at the core of the seasonal palette, with key pieces available in sweet pop pinks, fuchsias and magenta tones. The light summer weight fabrics also come in Antique whites, Boho prints and florals.


Celebrating the summer fashion and the spirit of Ramadan, Max also revealed a special Moroccan inspired Ramadan capsule collection. Women get to dress in gorgeous kaftans, maxis and palazzo pants; a key piece for the summer wardrobe.


The menswear range features a mix of polo’s, lightweight unlined blazers, occasion formal shirts and fitted classic chinos & denim. While the kids can look chic in metallic colors & prints, sartorial shirts with bow ties, shorts with braces and lightweight blazers in linen blends.


I also loved the flowing dresses and maxi skirts, perfectly matched with colorful slouchy tank tops. The collection continues to feature statement pieces such as kaftan tops, and printed trousers.


This homegrown value fashion brand continues to represent the ‘Fashion For Real People’ campaign and the range recognizes true comfortable fashion allowing consumers unique individuality in the style choices they make this season.
