Mesmerizing! – Margiela’s Artisanal Show
John Galliano staged an eye-popping intergalactic adventure that blew our brains out!
Margiela’s Artisanal show this morning at Rue Saint-Maur reminded us of hyperreal holograms and sci-fi haute couture. It was chock-full of shimmering, iridescent glitz and graphic hybrid inventions that took us to other dimensions. Leveraging PVC and synthetic gear, padded footwear, irregular silhouettes, metallic overlays and sumptuous fabric mixes, the artisanal range crackled with alien energy and beautiful craft. The designer said he was reflecting on the frenetic pace of technological change and fashion’s infatuation with social media; strobe effects, prismatic light, high-fidelity luster and teched-out textiles/outerwear exploded on the runway as editors and guests lit up the looks with their phone cams and flashes. John Galliano is having a busy week to be sure. The artiste debuted his brand spankin’ new menswear range (amazing!) a few days ago and today woke up to VETEMENT’s obvious appropriation (outright theft?) of Margiela’s classically adapted, totally original Tabi toe boots. WTF?! Anyway, the artisanal collection is straight up spellbinding! Get hypnotized.
