Max Mara's Ian Griffiths Talks Nature’s Effect On Creativity, When Working From Home

"I have been working from my cottage in the delightful Suffolk countryside. Before I start work each morning, I take my dogs for a walk on the heathland and then I tend to my flower garden. It has been a pleasure to watch the season unfold from day to day.

Nature is teaching me a lesson; to take my time, to think things through – and to be more creative with colour. I have various desks and tables around the house and I move around to follow the light. I don’t need much in the way of materials, but I couldn’t manage without my coloured pencils.

When this is over we will all face the task of rebuilding the world. How do you dress to do that? I believe that Max Mara’s creative philosophy – well- designed classics that allow you to show your best self – will be more relevant than ever. Max Mara is about clothes for a woman on a motorcycle mission. She’s a force of nature."
