The connectivity of interdependence becomes revalued in times of separation. The reliance of one person upon another, it is a vital pas de deux activated by instinct and trust. For the Spring/Summer 2021 ‘Co-Ed’ Collection, Maison Margiela interprets this concord through the tango. Vigorous and intense, the dance is cathartic: releasing the spirit of the old, it inspires the lust to move on. It compels acceptance; it heralds new beginnings; it beckons change. In the second and final installment of S.W.A.L.K. – the filmic project first launched for haute couture – creative director John Galliano demonstrates how techniques developed in the Artisanal collection are artistically industrialized for ready-to-wear.
