This collection was created by remote collaboration at the height of the pandemic in Italy. When it came to conceptualising it, the MM6 team decided to skip prints and colour - too hard to see over Zoom - and focus on form and function instead. And aren't we glad. Single breasted, perfectly tailored and with a strong lapel collar, this garment is a sartorial masterpiece. A power blazer in this surprising hue throws even the most megalomaniac colleague off centre. Described as Maison Margiela’s “cool, younger sister”, MM6 reinterprets Margiela’s runway experiments and archive pieces in soft, wearable fabrics. While MM6 garments are designed as stand alone pieces, their mastery lies in their ensemble potential: each piece of clothing is the building block of a go-to outfit. The newest MM6 collection riffs on an ongoing obsession with deconstruction, oversized silhouettes and garments that can be worn inside-out, upside-down and every which way.
Shrouded in intrigue since day one, Maison Margiela was founded by a Belgian designer who has kept his identity completely secret for more than 30 years – despite being one of the most influential designers of the century. Combining luxurious silks and cottons with materials like scotch tape, vintage gloves, wire, and army surplus socks, Maison Margiela is responsible for some of the provocative and joyful garments in fashion history.
