John Galliano presented his Fall 2016 collection for Maison Margiela today during Paris Fashion Week. This time around there were no creeping models and no boys in dresses, just mixed and matched ready-to-wear to please the Margiela customer. Spliced together thin knits, black suiting, and wearable, military-inflected outwear made up a bulk of the collection, accentuated by Margiela flourishes. Find the seven highs of the presentation below while you wait for Sarah Mower’s full review.
1. The show was held in a white space constructed within the Grand Palais. Unlike Margiela’s Couture shows that have just a single row of seating, today’s presentation had several, allowing more guests to take in Galliano’s latest.
2. The show opened with a caramel trench with oversize knit sleeves worn like a muff.
3. Models wore large earrings and brooches with Matisse-like shapes on them.
4. Many looks came with cinched waists courtesy of large belts with giant silver or gold buckles.
5. Shoes ranged from thick-heeled loafer pumps to these gold-trimmed lace-up boots with ribbon detailing.
6. The show’s final two looks featured dresses hung like panels on the front of models and belted around the wait.
7. Each model had a unique hair and makeup look. Some sported short bobs in bold hues, while others had matted-down hair in magenta, emerald, or teal. Among the beauty looks by Pat McGrath were sparkling green lips, black lipliner worn with pale lipstick, and bare-looking faces with accentuated brows.
