John Galliano strikes again with one of his strangest runway shows yet — that just so happens to be one of the most memorable moments of Paris Fashion Week so far. For the designer’s Maison Margiela Fall/Winter 2017 show, he had a model walk with an oversized, furry black bag over her head. Not only was the fluffy head accessory not accompanied by a voluminous, Marie Antoinette-esque gown, the complementing look included a mere skin-tight nude tank top and blue jeans. The collection showed significant similarities to Galliano’s earlier Maison Margiela Couture show in January which featured an array of garments that included geometric cut outs and loose, colored threads dangling from coat collars to its buttons.
John Galliano never ceases to surprise us. For his latest couture collection for Maison Margiela, the designer debuted an artful collection inspired by both Picasso and Snapchat. On the runway, models showcased sheer veils, featuring silhouettes of facial elements, eyes, noses, and mouths, reminiscent of Picasso’s Cubist paintings.
