Maison Margiela Artisanal Co-Ed Collection Autumn-Winter 2020

55

Maison Margiela presents the Artisanal Co-Ed Collection for Autumn-Winter 2020. Creative director John Galliano detects a desire for transparency: a new consciousness clarified by the illumination of the creative process and the human values it represents. Through the format of film, the Artisanal practice is captured by image-maker Nick Knight.

Hope, heroism, hedonism. Constrained at the mercy of nature, resourcefulness becomes a force of vigour. For the Autumn-Winter 2020 Artisanal collection, Maison Margiela empowers our collective moment of resurgence by reinforcing its own ethics.

Creative director John Galliano detects in times of uncertainty a desire for transparency: a new consciousness clarified by the illumination of the creative process and the human values it represents. Through the voyeuristic format of film, image-maker Nick Knight captures the euphoria and melancholia of the genderless artisanal practice. It unravels through the grammar of the thriller in a narrative story under the acronymic title of S.W.A.L.K.
