n a soft, stretchy lycra, this oversized shirt pours itself down the body like fluid on the skin. Because it drapes so well, this shirt can be tucked and worn to the most important meeting of the year, and then shaken out and worn at the most important party afterwards. 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.
