MAISON MARGIELA SPRING 20201 RTW COLLECTION
John Galliano methodically dissects the gauze of wedding dresses, the 1940s suits, the tailored coats and bias-cut silk skirts for the Spring collection.

For the Maison Margiela Spring 2021 RTW collection, John Galliano interprets this concord through the tango. His ready-to-wear collection is a direct follow-on from the research for the Artisanal clothes he develops for the Maison Margiela equivalent of haute couture.
The manufacturing processes is visible with the screen-printing of the wet-look patches on suits; how traditionally loomed Venetian brocades are made into the dancers’ mary jane shoes; the combination of laser-cut leather and hand-finishing behind the making of bags.
None of this could ever have been laid out in a runway show. It makes for a multilayered piece, capturing the drama and the depth of the collaborative work at Maison Margiela.
