John Galliano meditated on the “eternal spark for rebellion” and the “nature of the bourgeois gesture” for Margiela’s latest couture collection. It’s the insouciant drape of a scarf around the neck, an oversized coat hung over a gown that speak to an utter wearability, a laidback look at the ultimate luxury, couture.
According to the brand, the majority of materials selected for the collection are reclaimed. Sustainability is the actual ultimate in luxury now, after all. To that point, Galliano also reflected on the idea of the uniform, providing the couture customer with the perfect little tweed jacket, the belted trench, the printed foulard scarf. It’s all topped off with a new shoe collab between Maison Margiela and Reebok. Bougie, indeed.
