Established by the Max Mara Fashion Group in 1980, Marina Rinaldi is a luxury fashion label for plus-size women. The founder of the Max Mara Group, Achille Maramotti, launched the clothing line to cater to the needs of women who had consistently been overlooked in the fashion world. The brand is named after Achille’s grandmother, Marina Rinaldi, who is said to have made dresses for curvaceous women during her career as a seamstress. Until the launch of Marina Rinaldi, plus-size fashion was not available, and with the brand’s introduction, the term ‘plus-size’ was also introduced. This was derived from the Italian expression ‘taglia comoda’, which translates to ‘comfortable size’.
With an inclusive outlook, Marina Rinaldi aims to celebrate all women and provide clothing that fits well on any body shape or size.
Marina Rinaldi produces clothing from a UK size 14 up to a UK 28, which is incredibly rare, not only in luxury fashion, but amongst fashion labels as a whole. Considering all women is incredibly important in design, and remains at the heart of the label, allowing size to never be a barrier against style and quality. Marina Rinaldi encompasses all needs, providing clothing, beachwear, shoes, bags and accessories. From evening attire to loungewear, there are high-quality designs for all occasions. Glamorous flowing dresses, sleek outerwear and refined knits are timeless yet effortlessly elegant. Stylish denim and modern footwear offer everyday luxury, focusing on a simple and chic aesthetic. Minimalist pieces meet more extravagant and bold designs, meaning that there is something for any mood or preference.
With stores located throughout the world, Marina Rinaldi can be found from Dubai to London to Berlin. Their collections are also found online, through the brand’s online store, and through Harrods.
