A reflection of the times

Maison Margiela SS21 perfectly encapsulates the unrelenting chaos the world faces today.

Amidst a global pandemic, in a world where wearing a mask in public is a legal requirement and public health services are drowning in the depths of mass sickness and mass responsibility, Margiela’s latest collection captures these horrors so exquisitely.

The SS21 collection includes blood red facial coverings, black and white doctor-like tailoring, and ghoulish dresses on zombie-like figures. The designs combined with the show are very much like something out of a horror film.

Galliano, collaborating with Nick Knight and ShowStudio for digital creative direction, created an eery, morbid and dark atmosphere for the season’s digital show, further fitting with today’s calamities.

Below are a number of images from the show taken from instagram:
