PFWM SS19: Maison Margiela

FRENCH-based Maison de Couture Maison Margiela has proposed a new vision of man and style for its SS19 show. Under the direction of John Galliano, the models paraded with outfits reminiscent of the past of the fashion designer like corsetry and the bias cutting he popularized in the ‘90s. All these styles and influences previously intended for women were adopted by men during the show. This abolition of the genre has resulted in fitted cuts, mini shorts and high-waisted vinyl pants.

No extravagance in terms of colours and prints, indeed, Galliano used a sober palette with black, white, green, blue and red tones. All the exuberance was in the cut, especially with corsets that structured silhouettes and suits. He also played with transparency in tops that came to cover subtly jackets to sublimate them.

During this show, Maison Margiela mixed up gender and influences and in each look offered extremely masculine items such as cowboy boots and a feminine item like a top embroidered with feathers.
