A Masterclass in Suiting at MM6 Maison Margiela Fall/Winter 2022
The concise collection showcased a variety of supple leathers and reimagined tailoring.
As the globe grapples with a post-pandemic world, the fashion industry is looking to relaxed suiting as a navigating force. Shunning the athleisure sets that have dominated the past couple of years, exaggerated lapels and sleek, cinched waists are destined to take center stage in the upcoming seasons. For Fall/Winter 2022, MM6 Maison Margiela offered a look at this sartorial future, showcasing a variety of sensual suiting and deconstructed ready-to-wear.
On par with the deconstructed nature of the collection, guests gathered at a no-frills warehouse in Milan to witness the label’s latest outerwear offerings. Opening with a trio of all-black looks, the collection journeyed in several sartorial directions—scale-like denim, low-rise leather trousers, distressed knits, and off-the-shoulder evening wear.
Though MM6 is decidedly less experimental than its namesake counterpart, the collection reimagined a variety of must-have classics—motorcycle jackets, trench coats, double-breasted blazers—in a manner that was equally thoughtful and wearable. Deep blue, provoking black, and chic olive hues took control while pops of red and infusions of animal prints were welcomed additions to the collection.
Coupled with the label’s tailoring know-how, glitter-infused makeup and subtle design notions added a futuristic element to the collection. As playing card motifs glided on pleated trousers, opera-length gloves dramatized leather tanks and toyed with a burgeoning stylistic fad.
Experimental without being overly avant-garde, MM6 Maison Margiela’s Fall/Winter 2o22 collection was a love letter to suiting and chic, intelligent silhouettes. Supple leather outerwear and feather-trimmed puffers proved the brand’s knack for must-have Fall essentials and joined forces with angular eveningwear and sculptural touchpoints to create the ultimate modern wardrobe.
