MM6 Maison Margiela launches its new Autumn/WInter 2019 pre-collection which explores the concept of letters. Taking the form of identifiable items graphic lines become letters. ‘M-A-R-G-I-E-L-A-6’ can be read out.  

Tailoring is approached with the same non-conformist spirit. Imbued with the attitude of the house, suiting, jackets and waistcoats take on an ultra-modern and youthful ease, rejecting traditional notions. Dresses take on similar hybrid forms. Sometimes masculine, with oversized jacket pocket detailing, other times more feminine in sheer lace or crushed velvet.  

This season, a new house classic is born: introducing the ‘6’ logo print cylindrical heel shoe. Leaving behind a ‘6’ foot imprint wherever one goes, it continues the idea of letters as garments.
