With the return of live shows in full swing, Maison Margiela takes the digital route for Paris Fashion Week, debuting its Spring/Summer 2022 collection in a short film. The film is a collaborative effort based on an original concept produced by John Galliano and directed by Olivier Dahan. As multiple themes of community, rebellion and environmental awareness are highlighted throughout the film, Galliano unveils a collection inspired by the revolutionary courage of the post-pandemic youth generation.
A master craftsman skilled at creating new textures and constructing unique narratives in garments, Galliano showcases a series of sweeping coats, delicate dresses, and needle-punched knitwear within the film. Of course, his tradition of developing haute couture techniques and applying them to ready-to-wear pieces is present in this collection as Galliano presents coats adorned with feathered fishing flies and braided strips of gray herringbone for a net-like effect.
The exploration of wintry coastal and marine styles is clear as an integral color palette of black, navy, and indigo contrasted by various shades of green, blue, yellow, and ecru is showcased throughout the collection. Thick wool cocoon coats are layered with colorful tulle and embroidered with feathers similar to those on a fishing lure as knitwear channels inspiration from the Guernseys and Fair Isles. A fan of weathered garments, Galliano draws on the effects of essorage to create padded wool coats with acquired signs of age. The collection also features upcycled evening wear, wood-soled clog sneakers, and biodegradable tabi-boots in colors that reference a climate-conscious society.
As Galliano continues to weave relevant ethics and beliefs affecting society with his unique non-alchemist style, the result can only be a creative process that leaves much open to interpretation and expands on the identity of Maison Margiela.
