Oversize, layered, wrapped and tied with rope: For the last MM6 Maison Martin Margiela season before John Galliano assumes creative direction of the house, the design team channeled a street vibe, working three themes: Shelter, The Great Outdoors and Indoor Clothing, as in looks inspired by lingerie and pajamas.
Elsewhere, the team showed apronlike leather overlays — in a top and a dress — with drawstring details, and a striking print of a deconstructed landscape on a boxy polyester jumpsuit. If those were aimed at the more urban, outgoing girl, lush and voluminous coats worked the cocooned, nesting side of her. These looks played to MM6’s sartorial codes. For fall, it’s up to Galliano to take these and interpret them in his own way.
