The presentation of the Maison Margiela spring summer 2022 collection took place in Paris a few days ago!
Placing the models in a post-apocalyptic context, the French director Olivier Dahan has created a film whose protagonists are the garments designed by the creative director of the maison, John Galliano.
Abandoned objects, cold nature and mist are the backdrop for a truly extravagant show.
The main shades, in line with the background, are blue navy, black and dark green combined, however, with bright colors such as yellow, red and electric blue. Some pieces also revolve around shades of white and beige.
The collection takes up the maritime style obviously revisited by Galliano which mixes different fabrics such as lace, denim, wool and velvet. The coats worn by the models are covered with tulle in bright colors such as electric blue and red, the same goes for classic-style trousers and skirts.
The collection also consists of denim garments such as vests and shorts accompanied by thigh-high lacquered rubber boots that vaguely resemble fisherman’s boots.
Maison Margiela offers a collection clearly inspired by the codes of the nautical world combined with unexpected details such as lace accessories, with pearls, studs and anthropomorphic embroideries.
What shows the depth of the maison’s artistic and craftsmanship is the use of the Essorage technique, which is a set of treatments and washes done on fabrics with enzymes to achieve a vintage effect. Furthermore, it should be noted that the rubber used for the footwear is recycled and that the leathers used are vegetable.
The collection will be available from next year on the Maison Margiela official websites!
