The firm Maison Martin Margiela opened a new era this morning, under the creative direction of its most recent acquisition, the damn designer John Galliano. The bad reputation of the designer (known his taste for alcohol, Valium and racism) can be ignored when it comes to his work on the catwalk.
London was the city that hosted the first work of Galliano for MMM, presenting a series of couture. 54 The British did not leave his excesses: precarious forms he used the fashion house are interrupted from today; Fabrics stick with grotesque, irregular gestures.
Galliano takes the conventions of elegance collage of fabrics and textures, red and black are stirred until completion in dresses that seem to take a breather, with its simple silhouette. The walkway ended with an eco house Martin Margiela wink: his mask feature.
