Texture, texture, texture…
What does it all mean?
If there is one solid take away from Maison Margiela’s Artisanal FW 2018 collection, it’s that texture plays a dominant role in this assembly of 32 looks. Look closely because what appears to be one form of eye drawing texture is entirely something different. Sheer pleated knit dances with the eyes as if to be the finest organza. What arrives like a new brand of neoprene is what can only best be described as common packing and upholstery foam. Everything appears to be wrapped up in neat packages of unique fashion delivery.
Does it have to mean anything at all?
The serious fashion enthusiast will notice nuances of collections past as archives of fashion past appears. There seems to be something from every Avant guard collection from the past 30 years all convoluted into one 2018 runway. Virtual reality becomes real-time runway reality. Communication plays a memorable tune for onlookers through the careful placement of smartphones on cherry-picked ensembles. Just when the creative mind has the collection’s meaning all figured out, the narrative changes completely. There is no confusion, just multiple messages expressed through continuous color and texture.
“This artisanal collection does one of many things, it proves enhancement of the female shape through engaging unexpected and practical applications of life.”
-Mary Winkenwerder, ULTIMATE REPORT
Have a beautiful and successful week!
