Maison Margiela Fall 2020 - Runway Review
February 27, 2020
Uniforms and upcycling. John Galliano's touchpoints for fall took Maison Margiela in a further mode of deconstruction -- all the while retaining the high points of tailoring the brand has long been known for. Employing a technique called "Recicla," Galliano handpicked vintage fashions and re-appropriated them into the collection. For fall, that included lapels in contrasting colors (neon yellow, turquoise, orange) inspired by the American painter Edward Hopper thrown over tulle dresses; patched-together dresses worn with outerwear, diced and spliced. Accessories included bags made from taro leaves and a signature 5AC bag upcycled from reclaimed luxury skins.
