MAISON MARGIELA. READY-TO-WEAR STUNNING FALL /WINTER 2021 COLLECTION THAT YOU SHOULD DISCOVER.

Maison Margiela, The Collection.

MAISON MARGIELA. AUTUMN-WINTER 2021 COLLECTION THAT YOU SHOULD DISCOVER.
  • Fuchsia reversed satin top with exposed shoulder pads.
  • Brown reversed trousers in leather
  • Fuchsia satin gloves.
  • Reversible faux pearl ear pendants.
  • Upside-down faux pearl ring.
  • Brown python-printed calf leather ankle boots.

For Fall/Winter 2021, MM6 Maison Margiela moves into reverse mode. Revolved inside out, upside down and back-to-front. Traditional pieces reveal new design dimensions for a reborn wardrobe inspired by these topsy turvy times.

This collection began with a simple question: how do pieces transform when their iconic parts are slightly rearranged, or totally scrambled? The result is a complete macro/micro design reset. Genres change: a blouse becomes a casual top with satin shoulder pads and seams exposed on the outside; the signature MM6 lab coat in reverse shearling is ready for rugged weather and a Nordic patterned sweater in inside-out jacquard knit resembles a tattered, kaleidoscopic piece of tapestry. Anamorphosis flipped portrait prints of composers Sibelius, Satie and Ravel on T-shirts
provoke a second look, and the double handled clutch with hanging chain is delightful upside down.

On the Left:

  • Black pinstripe back-to-back tailoring blazer in plain wool
  • Black pinstripe reversed tailoring trousers in plain wool with exposed zipper and seams
  • Black double function ankle boots in grainy calf leather
  • Silver reversible hoop earrings
  • Set of rings in vintage silver finishing with upside-down hand-written logo ring

On the Right:

  • Black reversed tailored blazer in wool with visible lining belted with black cotton tape
  • Reversed raw denim jeans with patched seams
  • Reversible faux pearl ear pendants
  • Upside-down faux pearl ring
  • Inside-out satin pumps in calf leather

Bourgeois conventions of good taste are cheekily corrupted in a back to back trench dress paired with a generic grocery bag and pumps, while a tad of gaudy humour is evoked in faux-pearl ear pendants with fastenings on both ends. Reinvention is a kind of rebirth, a deeply creative process of destruction and reconstruction. This MM6 remix takes its cue from diverse artistic sources: the experiments with chords, rhythm, repetition and form by early 20th-century French avant-garde composer Erik Satie, Artist Marcel Duchamp’s playful Ready-Mades, the environmental sounds of mid-20th century radical American composer John Cage and Andy Warhol’s advert and celebrity-obsessed Pop art in the 1960s.

  • Reversed stone washed denim jacket
  • White t-shirt with hanging MM6 label
  • Reversed stone washed jeans with patched seams
  • Black backpack XL with double straps MM6 Maison Margiela x Eastpak
  • Inside-out ankle boots in calf leather with white painting treatment
  • Reversed classic chain necklace
  • Set of rings in vintage silver finishing with upside-down hand-written logo ring

To illustrate this wardrobe transformation, MM6 Maison Margiela created the atmosphere of a French cabaret from the 20s – the 1920s – where avant-garde musicians, writers and artists came to play music, converse and hang out. The collection film features an intimate club filled with habitués seated at café tables close to the stage for an Autumn/Winter 2021 show. Listening to a temperamentally warped piano score, which rewinds occasionally, and where the beginning and the end is mischievously intertwined.

From the left: Trench dress in cotton poplin.

Middle: Black reversed coat with faux shearling trim belted with off white cotton tape
