Maison Margiela

If you get past the sci-fi Geisha styling, John Galliano actually served quite a few classically tailored pieces for this Maison Margiela Spring 2016 ready-to-wear offering. The silhouettes were for the most part ‘50s inspired but he gave the vintage look a contemporary update with silver metallic and cat-print accents.

Founder: Martin Margiela

Owner: OTB, 2002

Designer: John Galliano

Year Established: 1988

Spring 2016 Inspiration: The fifties, sci-fi, and Geisha.

Star Pieces: The navy blue bustier top and bronze, bias-cut skirt with paint splatter print at the back. Otherwise, accessories were king—silver leather gloves and spacious and structured totes in particular.

The Middle Eastern Sale: For our lovers of the ‘50s style, give your wardrobe a contemporary update with one of these three-quarter length, cat-print collared coats.

Drawback: Will fishnets really make a comeback? We hope not.
