MM6 Maison Margiela: Ready-to-wear SS17
The theme of MM6 Maison Margiela’s London presentation was “hugs and kisses,” apparently. Unfortunately, however (though not actually demonstrated in this particular set of images), the collection was displayed upon mannequins. So no hugging and kissing. Getting intimate with inanimate objects, as we’ve learnt, is frowned upon. But anyway. The collection. Well, this was, like the theme, about “togetherness”. Clothes that looked like people intertwined. Think: trousers upon trousers, long-sleeved t-shirts refashioned into skirts, arms dangling, a perspex skirt revealing a long shirt beneath. There was a touch of Americana about it too -track pants and track tops, amplified at the shoulders, cut-off denims, cocooning leather jackets. We also particularly enjoy the “cat playing with a butterfly” print. Spesh Phoebe. She loves an animal-based item of clothing. Even more so when it’s a pussy print.
