Maison Margiela Menswear Spring-Summer 2016
The collection is the embodiment of chic and sophisticated, from the first step onto the catwalk this collection radiates a classic and tasteful aesthetic. From the clean cuts and lines of the effortless, no fuss pieces to the elegantly paired colour combinations. This collection is sleek, refined and charismatic. It includes predominately smart- casual to formal pieces, all a variety of the classic suit combination: trousers make a firm staple, jeans and shorts don’t make an appearance. Galliano keeps a relaxed undertone throughout the collection by styling the models with open, bare chests, against narrow notched lapels. Galliano introduces formal pieces in the form of double breasted suit jackets & matching coats, referencing the sophisticated aesthetics discussed previously. What adds to the stylish seductive nature of the collection is the long length of the majority of the top coats featured; the length and the movement of the material once in use demand attention, and emits an authoritative and alluring essence.
