Maison Margiela Creative Director John Galliano may not give many in-depth interviews at this point in his career, but he's adept as ever at communicating through the medium of fashion. On Wednesday in Paris, the designer showed his latest collection for the house on a simple white runway devoid of fancy set pieces or dramatic lighting, subtly underscoring the fact that his clothes are interesting enough to hold one's attention without any extraneous bells or whistles.
For Fall 2019, Galliano presented a collection that focused on interesting shapes and unique silhouettes in neutral colors like black and khaki. There were shots of bright color and pattern in the form of some multicolored leggings and a dress or two, but overall, the designer relied more on innovative construction techniques than rainbow hues to catch the eye. The collection contained nods to some of the trends we've already seen cropping up elsewhere this season, albeit with a Margiela twist — the quilting that was popular in New York was so puffy it almost looked like upholstery in one belted jacket, while the strong shoulders and nipped waists that Milan favored got even more dramatic in Margiela's structured suiting and outerwear.
