MM6 Maison Margiela | LFW SS 17
The design collective at MM6 Maison Margiela continued on the affectionate theme of hugs and kisses it explored for the resort 2017 collection, looking again to images of couples embracing for inspiration.
This translated into creased and tangled effects in the cut and seams placed to skew the line of garments. One top was constructed with two back panels — the idea being that when people hug, you don’t see their fronts. So conceptual, this lot.
A kitsch print of frolicking kittens that appeared on a black pencil skirt and a sweatshirt was deceptively innocent. Closer inspection revealed the kittens playing with lit candles and death’s-head hawkmoths. Creepy.
