As each year unfolds in the world of fashion, it seems that we are gradually distancing ourselves from designs and collections that evoke a lasting sense of wonder. We’re talking about the kind of excitement, awe, and romance that keeps us talking about these pieces for years to come, rather than fleeting moments that most fashion succumbs to. However, John Galliano stands tall as one of the few surviving great artists, with a wealth of experience in the fashion industry and an unwavering commitment to creativity. Instead, it’s more like wine that gets better with time. If Galliano were a winemaker, then his 2024 ode to the art of craftsmanship for Margiela would be a classic Ch√Ęteau d’Yquem, with its refined taste and historical significance reminding us of the true art of dressing.

Debuting during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, the new handcrafted collection embarks on a profound journey of self-expression. Undeniably staged, the show kicked off with a dramatic ensemble of collective musical performance before models descended onto the runway in a misty, nocturnal urban landscape, later transforming it into a living room setup. Yet, even with its spectacularity, the stage ambiance is just the appetizer. The main course comes from the diversity within the groups that strike a delicate balance between time, light, and darkness.

The allure of the garments comes to life through snug corsets and cinchers, faux wood and porcelain breastplates, pleated tulle and organza gowns, raw-edged crepe wool seams, abstract lace wings, feathered coats, Milletrage-made jackets, and more. No technique is spared as Galliano conveys an elegant exhibition of sculpture, form, and texture. But what elevates the wardrobe even further are the meticulous details bleached under sunlight, cigarette burns, and moon-fade accents that convey personality and emotion.

Witness this collection, a masterpiece of fashion:
