Dressing in reverseMaison Margiela FW 18

Illusionary materials create
memories of the familiar.


Innate new language. Dressing in reverse is an idea as subversive as relaxed glamour: a trench coat worn casually under a dress or the glimpse of a fisherman’s knit under a transparent skirt. Creative director John Galliano examines the inverted wardrobe established at Maison Margiela. Outerwear transforms into dresses when dressing in haste. It’s a nylon coat worn under a décortiqué leather jacket, or a deconstructed salopette layered over a trench coat. Seducing the eye, illusionary materials create memories of the familiar.
