Dear Shaded Viewers,
Its time for a show, the Margiela show. The viewers are a part of the process behind the performance this time. On a main stage–the Auditorium di Milano Fondazione Cariplo, the music is the ensemble of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano, and the dancers are performing an avant-garde masterpiece akin to the MM6 aesthetic–Igor Stravinsky’s: The Rite of Spring. The silhouettes carry the same beauty, movement is key, dance is key. It’s vests, off shoulder jersey leotards, bleached denim maxi skirts, dulled satin, and roomy mohair knits. The shining piece is the shrunken spaghetti tops as cummerbunds, the cinch at the waist is a beautiful touch, one that is sure to be seen after this.
The footwear is equally bound by the ballet dream–mules in satin and calfskin, thigh high sock boots in aquamarine, fuschia, and taupe jersey. Added to this is the collection of Japanese bags, with classic origami-inspired form. Its a lived-in cozy collection meant to be worn, “not ready to wear, they are ready when worn.”
