MM6 Maison Margiela
MM6 Maison Margiela SS22 fashion show took place at La Belle Aurore, a beloved Milanese rendezvous to turn to your neighbour and clink glasses.
Feelings of giddy joy inform jaunty graphic effects such as red and pine green mylar chessboards printed directly onto denim trousers and wool tailoring. There’s a sense of playful contradiction and subversion. Several leather-effect garments are in fact made of the boiled cotton used for the House’s blouse blanche. It’s a spirit echoed in the rebelliousness of the surrealist women artists that inspired the MM6 Maison Margiela collective this season.
In a continuation of a house tradition, MM6 Maison Margiela proposes a limited-edition souvenir t-shirt. Worn during the show by members of the house’s team and La Belle Aurore’s staff alike, it is a physical token of the sense of community that characterized MM6 show -one to hold on to for years to come.
The MM6 Maison Margiela x Eastpak SS22 capsule extends to faux fur wheeled luggage, ‘dripping’ iterations of the Pak’r backpack, an enlarged shoulder version of a flat wallet, and hybrid interpretations of the Japanese bag.
