MM6 crashes the glamour world of metropolitan society.
As rough as the scattered white walls of its underground venue, Maison Margiela offshot line hit London with a show that paid homage to the creative community that surrounds the brand. Djs, artists,up-and-coming designers and fashion influencers walked the runway dressed up in bold outfits with a distinctive analog meets abantagrde style. True to the brand’s deconstruct-reconstruct heritage, the pieces featured a successful mashup of sequins, groungy prints and trashy-chic elements. Irreducibly weird but insistently pop, the collection was inspired by those 24 hour party kids that rock the vibrant nightlife of the British capital, and celebrate a certain ideal of eternal youth. Obvious disco and rave-like references were reworked through the intelligent Margiela twist that turned plastic bin bags into detachable sleeves, glittered fanny packs into tops and old tambourines into necklaces. Despite the 90’s nostalgic takeover that dominates the fashion industry since last year, feel of the brand remains forward thinking.
