As you may have heard, this is Margiela Monday. Here are some images from today’s Maison Margiela Artisanal Collection, designed by John Galliano. Here are some examples from the runway.mmm 01 mmm 02 mmm 03 mmm 04 mmm 05

The theme of the show is described as follows:

A process of discovery, returning to one’s roots. Piece by piece, deconstructing and constructing a new story for Margiela. A deep commitment to the extraordinary possibilities of the Maison’s Atelier and the art of Haute Couture. Approaching tailoring, techniques, craftsmanship like a new explorer, or painter. One who sees beauty in things that are often taken for granted, giving everything a newly enriched life. A powerful and fierce yet refined mix of fabrics and materials. Stripped down, or reborn together in startling and unexpected ways. New direction given with play on proportion and sartorial rules. Languid, sweeping. Precise tailoring. A new fuller, revealing silhouette. Eyes wide open in wonderment to a veritable Cabinet de Curiosités. A jigsaw of lacquered shells reminiscent of Arcimboldo style figures. A miniature battalion charging across a black velvet shoulder. Pearls that bring teardrops of memories to the face. Looking through the glass, discovering an elusive, rare even arrestingly strange new beauty, of muses who nonchalantly arouse your senses. The Finale of Toiles. The Cabine marching in honest testimony of the process, the trials and errors, the time and emotion behind each cut, each line, each vision. A world deep in its past but with promises of the future.

The makeup is by Pat McGrath and hair by Eugene Souleiman.

  1. I’m surprisingly drawn to the lace hat. It so 70’s and so noir at the same time it fills me with glee.
