Val Max, the Milan-based collection, is for the girl, or the girl’s mother, who doesn’t just purchase clothes, she curates her collection.

A favorite: The gray dress pairs knit and pearlized leather for a play of matte and shine and the skirt has a molded, architectural feeling. New York Showroom: www.lccollectionsltd.com
