Paris Haute Couture AW15: Maison Margiela
An artisanal collection
The presentation of Maison Margiela's Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 15 collection offered the ultimate seating arrangement for guests, giving everyone in attendance a front-row vantage. The perfect perspective from which to view John Galliano's artisanal collection, crafted from interesting and intricate fabric combinations, including a burlap sack, within single pieces, and careful tailoring.
John Galliano showed his masterful hand through the craftsmanship of the collection, which was influenced and inspired by Impressionist art. Some models sported painted faces that looked like ripped fabric and others were painted with palm leaves, nodding to the work of French artist, Matisse.
Galliano worked with dimension and volume with skill, delivering his signature drama to the lineup, exhibited on a pale floor length gown, created through several voluminous tiers. And the marieé creation, which closed the show, formed of an exuberant tube-like plastic trim. And the leading talking-point of the entire collection – the shoes – created from a pointed pump front and a circular metal heel. Discover the collection in full via our gallery below...
