Where better to celebrate 60 years of iconic Max Mara coats than the eastern bloc, where cold-weather gear rules? This month, Moscow’s State Historical Museum exhibits some 70 pieces culled from the Italian brand’s archive in a show titled “Coats!” Luckily, you don’t need your passport to step out in the house’s fall outerwear: tailored mohair pieces, cozy blanket-fringed coatdresses, and czarina-chic winter whites.
