For this couture collection, John Galliano played with the trench coat and after ski-inspired knits, also toying with the idea of being in a hurry – leaving the house with shampoo in your hair as the Maison Margiela creative director explained after the show.

The deconstructed pieces oozed legacy however it all came together in a very Galliano way that left an aftertaste of glamour and excellence. I think it’s a easier to slip into banality and recycled ideas when the brand’s legacy is as strong as Maison Margiela’s, however thanks to Galliano’s endless and uncompromising creativity – nothing is ever banal about his shows. Instead of living in a legacy, Galliano is continuing it the only way he can, which is the greatest homage of them all.
