MAISON MARGIELA SPRING 2021 RTW: DETAILS

None of this could ever have been laid out in a runway show.

MAISON MARGIELA SPRING 2021 RTW: DETAILS

We see Galliano methodically dissecting the gauze wedding dresses, the 1940s suits, the tailored coats and bias-cut silk skirts. We see how each section fits into the numbered Maison Margiela lines. Understand, in detail, how the Recicla upcycled pieces are made into composite garments, and how each of these one-offs are “stringently tested,” ensuring that the materials meet safety standards for sale. Watch the expert skill Galliano applies to cutting away jacket shoulders and inserting tango-shirt frills into slits in classic coats.

He is at pains to elucidate how this Co-Ed ready-to-wear collection is a direct follow-on from the research for the Artisanal clothes he develops for the Maison Margiela equivalent of haute couture. Interspersed is footage of the manufacturing processes: the screen-printing of the wet-look patches on suits; how traditionally loomed Venetian brocades are made into the dancers’ mary jane shoes; the combination of laser-cut leather and hand-finishing behind the making of bags.

None of this could ever have been laid out in a runway show.
