If Prada and Missoni worth a jump in Milan, Maison Margiela definitely deserves one in Paris. The autumn-winter 2019 fashion show signed by John Galliano has once again touched the splendor of the brand, when it was Martin Margiela himself who led the games. Without losing sight of one’s identity, the English designer continues with dignity the work of the Belgian designer.
Sobriety and sartorial mastery. The défilé can be a synthesis in a key fashion of Arte Povera, in which the concept emerges without too many frills and made with the highest materials and embroideries. They are a proof, a trace, the coats that come out first on the catwalk, worn by men and women in pure Margiela style: intriguing, particular. Unique. And young people. Because Galliano does not feel the nostalgia of the past, indeed. As he himself declared, the latest collections are co-ed, that is, made by him with the help of interns from prestigious schools such as Central Saint Martins of London, where he graduated.
From the French Revolution to which the designer was inspired by the debut show after graduation, to the post-decadentism of our era. This is the path that Maison Margiela leads ideally to the presented garments, mostly in black. The flashes of color are used to emphasize the fact that there is still hope, despite the dark times in which we are forced to live.
