Contrary to popular belief, it does not take more to charm a fashion audience: snacks, an aperitif, a place that takes advantage of the still mild temperatures of Milan. The MM6 team did it all right tonight and presented an attractive clothing line to boot. The drink was a syrup of gin and ginger made with something called “perfect love,” and the food included a finger sandwich of Jerusalem artichoke and fennel, and a dessert in the form of a hollow eggshell stuffed with White chocolate. Not your standard rate, but MM6, being an offshoot of Maison Margiela, is not your standard release label.
The brand’s chief designer has had the name of André Breton and his lesser-known surreal compatriots Leonora Carrington and Claude Cahun verified, a non-conforming genre. A quick Google search after the show revealed a self-portrait of Cahun in a plaid jacket. This must have been a catalyst for the show, which featured an outlet top made from a roll-up chessboard and printed separate sheets whose trippy, three-dimensional effects were the result of printing on pre-fabricated clothing, not on flat bolts. tissue. Our last year and a half has been very surreal: the link between yesterday and today is quite easy to make. But the MM6 team were also excited by the coffee manners of Cahun and co. “Being in a bar with random people coming in and out is what we all want.”
It was the kind of clothes that will certainly intrigue double takes: shrunken leather jackets and square denim jackets were cinched at the waist with extra sets of sleeves, a double-breasted pantsuit was made from this. that looked like a paper bag, and another the top outlet took the shape of a stringy spider web. A cropped black tee-shirt dress with a deep plunging back and ragged hem has apparently been pulled from one of Carrington’s canvases. Wear it and you might not end up becoming the subject of a famous painting, but you will definitely be a part of it in your friends’ feeds.
