The imaginary cities of Chinese artist Liu Wei meld with the time-honored designs of Italian fashion house Max Mara on this track jacket, one of 11 pieces in a collaboration born of a mutual affection for urban topography and denizens. Laser-cut pieces of alpaca, stitched onto wool and cashmere, form a pattern depicting the map of a locale dreamed up by Wei and meant to be worn by equally idiosyncratic city dwellers.
