Maison Margiela Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

One of the most awaited collections may as well be the Maison Margiela fall/winter 2015-2016 collection as we love seeing the strange appear on stage, even if we may never touch some of those fashions with a 10-foot stick. Le Grand Palais seemed a fitting enough place, with steel floors and white benches, all the while having men in white coats vetting the tickets outside. It seemed almost like a hospital, perhaps a mental institution and here is where John Galliano gave us a glimpse of the latest Maison Margiela fashions fusing in his love of emotions and history with the fashion house’s conceptual legacy.

Crazy was expected and somewhat crazy was received as the ready to wear fashions were toned down quite a bit after what we had seen on the Maison Margiela spring/summer 2015 haute couture runway during the Paris Couture Fashion Week. Toned down it may have been but Vogue correctly describes the models as being either “edgy young things or crazily bewigged housewives on acid” as they stormed onto the runway and left us gasping for our breaths. Seeing hunched over models with way too much color on the face and the feet dragging in awkward positions is enough to give a sane person a whole load of nightmares. While his haute couture may have been a little too out of this world for our tastes, some of the pieces here were definitely to our liking, from the maxi coats in suede and leather, the velvet trousers that seem to be springing up everywhere on the runways these days, the tartan minis that have also become somewhat of a trend, and so much more. We found many a piece to covet among the line-up, including a navy button down mini dress with a slightly flared skirt, complete with a bow at the collar, long sleeves a black choker necklace high on the neck and pretty ankle strap shoes in a burnished gold coloring.

In terms of common trends, we see the midi skirts with the center slits as well as the tops with the deep V plunging necklines or keyhole openings on the chests that are a little wider than expected; we find cropped pants and lots of chiffon, pinstripes and tartan prints all in one. There are feathers and there are ruffles, while a model sports classic leopard print. We even have the see-through tops that barely cover the bare chest underneath, made of chiffon and funky floral prints.

Maison Margiela cannot be said to be the best of the shows on the Paris Fashion Week, but it is certainly one of the most memorable, if only for giving nightmares about doing too much crack while being a fashion maniac. We might like to keep to the first piece in the brown suede trench, as well as coveting that collared leather bomber jacket. We will probably steer clear of many of the other pieces though as it will only bring to mind orange red lipstick, crazy eyes, perfectly coiffed wigs and some interesting fashions that might look better on a mannequin than a human.
