Interior designer Anthony Baratta collaborates with Max Mara on a collection inspired by Southampton, and fellow East Enders supermodel Hailey Rhode Bieber and photographer Pamela Hanson lend their talents to the campaign.
Anthony Baratta is known for nautical motifs characteristic of Newport and Montauk.
When clothing brand Max Mara asked American decorating icon Anthony Baratta to collaborate on a capsule collection, he didn’t think twice. “For a designer to do a collection of clothing is a dream,” says Baratta, whose has an eponymous home decor shop in Westhampton Beach (1 Glovers Lane). The East End is dotted with homes that have embraced his signature idiosyncratic take on coastal living for the last 40 years. But this summer, the result of his eye for fabrics and color is walking around our Main streets, in the form of a 12-piece collection with Weekend Max Mara. “Southampton and Nantucket were on my mind when I was designing,” says Baratta, pointing to rickrack trimmings, gingham and blue-and-white porcelain-inspired prints. “It’s the tried and true of my summer house decorating.” To bring the pieces to life, Weekend Max Mara tapped Hailey Rhode Bieber and photographer Pamela Hanson, who both summer in the Hamptons. “The collection is very classic, and I went out of my way to make sure it came out this way,” Baratta says of standouts like lemon yellow trousers that feature illustrations of his own furniture designs and a duster coat decorated with porcelain vases. “It really says American summer.” us.maxmara.com/clothing/weekend-nantucket
