MM6 Maison Margiela returned to Milan Fashion Week for SS24 with its signature elevated take on daily dressing. Deconstruction remained from and centre, as outfits moved freely and blended into one.
First out of the block, we saw shirts crafted sans sleeves in a galactic silver colourway, worn tucked into trousers and paired with a branded MM6 belt. Quirky cut-outs featured across looks, with wide-leg trousers modified with cut-outs to the out-seam, enveloping bulb-toe boots.
Next up, the traditional tailoring was pulled apart as models wore shirts undone, with ties loosely draped around the neck. A grey overcoat fell below the knee and was paired with relaxed slacks and bulb-toe sandals, in a further undressing of style codes.
Wearable show invites featured in the collection with white tank tops stamped with the red “invite” branding to mark the occasion. Androgynous knitwear was cut loose and flowing, with cardigans fastened tight at the chest in off-white hues and worn over cropped, form-fitting tees and straight-fit trousers.
For SS24, long-sleeved shirts in electric blue, black and white were cut loose and crafted from a viscose-like material, refracting the show lights’ beam as exaggerated camp collars gently rested over tailored outerwear.
In keeping with the subversive styling, loosely tied tassels danced down the runway, with further detailing arriving in the form of MM6 branded leather keychains attached to belt loops. Distressed leather was used to craft full-length overcoats alongside clutches in varying sizes, carried loosely by the side of models and under the arm.
As we know, London fields’ treacherous and unpredictable terrain puts a lot of wear and tear on your beloved walking trainers. Well, fear not, Dalston daddies, as your East London-dwelling feet are about to be blessed with the most fashionable Salomon collab around.
The Maison Margiela sub-label used its SS24 collection to continue its collaboration with Salomon, which comes Bad Gal RiRi approved. Building on the success of collaborative XT-6 mules and boots, we saw the XT-6 in its full form worn under billowing trousers in a white and lime green colourway alongside a more muted black.
MM6 was founded in 2012 and serves as a sub-line of Maison Margiela. Unlike the main label, designed by creative director John Galliano, MM6 is designed by an illusive design team, bringing a streetwear-luxury fashion fusion. As part of its approach, we see the sartorial mundanity of everyday dress flipped on its head, which could be seen throughout its SS24 offering.
MM6’s SS24 collection was a contemporary continuation of what the brand is known for, decoding daily dress and presenting a refined, stripped-back simplicity whilst maintaining an elevated subversive flair.
