For the Spring/Summer 2022 Co-Ed Collection, Maison Margiela observes the desires of a new utopian youth in the age of emergence. Invigorated by possibility, theirs is a buoyancy moved by awareness: a reverence for nature, time, and instinct, and a heroic hope for the future. Drawing on the neo-alchemistic investigations proposed in the Artisanal Collection, creative director John Galliano develops the grammar of haute couture into Défilé expressions reflective of the power of nature and the passage of time.
