Everything and the opposite of everything from John Galliano for Maison Margiela, but there was a leitmotiv in this collection and it was the futuristic look of the models, resembling so many space creatures with asymmetric egg-shell headgear, earpieces and big crystal earrings similar to Spock’s ears in Star Trek. The rest was subversive chaos. Trenches worn as dresses with the lining acting as a skirt; suits and coats trimmed with clusters of black rubber, technical k-ways teamed with straight skirts. These were sometimes worn with vinyl leggings made from the most disparate materials, from wetsuit neoprene to bath towel terry and plastic crystals to rubberised lace. Everything came with sky high platforms alternated with walking sandals, backpacks and big fluorescent belts.
