Men’s – Raw Elegance. Maison Margiela SS16

That’s funny. John Galliano is the creative director of Maison Margiela, but officially he did not design the Resort collection you have seen earlier this week, and the men’s SS16 which is here. He only does women’s ready-to-wear and couture for this Parisian, ex-avantgarde house. And that is solidly visible by comparing these two collections to woman’s AW15, the latest creation of Galliano. The Margiela Resort for 2016 was a very commercial collection; the menswear line is all about raw elegance. As usually, chaotically painted vests, sheer tops with decoupage covering the chests and voluminous overalls. This collection is precisely the same thing that we saw last season… and that makes me mad because men’s Margiela used to excite me. And now the Maison Margiela studio plays it safe to keep up with the sales.
