“Modern Art mixed with some authenticity with Maison Margiela”
Maison Margiela; avant-garde is what made them unique. It wasn’t just pure absurdity but it was Art too. Maison Margiela portrayed as the “Obscure face”, because of its playful ways to let the spectators focus on the clothes, they conceal the model’s face with a beautiful embellished veil or a simple fabric or even long hair.
Martin Margiela is the founder who wasn’t known as a persona for the sake of the clothing, and he didn’t stay long as a Creative Director. In the actual time John Galliano is responsible and he was the one leading such beauty for Spring 2017 Couture.
Maison Margiela brought death, lust, nature and a dark serenity.
Black showed beautiful frames while the dress was either sliding over the model’s body or so fit and shaped, yet black showed perfect delicates and made the Modern Art show itself more and more.
Red played the role of seduction; it either hid her body because of so many layers or made it so clear how much of a woman she is. Nude made nature beautiful the color blended with the skin and made every model look septic.
Dark blue held a dangerous peace while it seemed so peaceful and conservative but yet it seemed like a struggle to get out.
There was diversity with the fabrics. Each and every outfit had a smart exceptional detail showing further more with the used tissues.
Satin, chiffon and baize were the most used fabrics. Black satin showed the beautiful flow of maxi skirts, even when it was ripped into straps shaping the body. Chiffon gave the skin beautiful value the black gave it classiness while white gave it the freedom of sight. Well for the baize, it was rarely used as a one piece. Baize cut and tattered allowing the fabric to hang slightly on the body.
Red Lenin gathered as a top made it had to see the shape of the model, yet so splattering with the color and the life of an “artisanal”.
Plissé and lace were slightly used in Black but were major looks in the collection as much as the other ones and the elusive use of these textiles made them so defining according to the other looks.
Now for the two sided dress (Red and Black), jersey was great doing the job. The shimmering side had the formal textile, while the matt side had some stunning embellishments over carved within the material.
Even the velvet and poplin were merely used in the whole collection, two outfits had them showing. Poplin in beige, and velvet in black; a ripped off coat had it so lucid, while the dark masked model shows beautiful mysticism.
Hats and stripes used all over the head gave the outfits small definitions, and they gave them a common point which made it easier to bind every story with the other. Bonnets gave the collection a spontaneous sign. As the Creative Director made sure to let this distinctive sign mix up with the Modern Art, the faces, the crafts were embroidered within the fabric, even the delusional Art made it seem so real, yet so fantastic. So indeed avant-garde came in place when this huge involvement of stories and themes made the street-wear out of realm, and carved the features of the models whom are wearing them.
These designs have shown freedom, “the walk of pride between the crowds”. Even through a photograph you can feel the charisma and energy, the vanity crawling out of each move. Even the makeup the hair style, especially the accessories even the boots gave the sign and indication to a defying world of beauty and normal.
This fashion runway illustrates the brilliant absurdity of such appealing fantasy. The taste of death, lust, nature and dark serenity give chills all over. Even freedom, rebellion and dreams pop out of each and every piece of Art. It’s the new ERA of fashion, revolution and most of all ART.
