That thumping hum you might have heard coursing through London's Fashion Week this past weekend was the building excitement of #MargielaMonday, designer John Galliano's first presentation since taking the helm at Maison Martin Margiela. There was supposedly an embargo on sharing images from the show, but, welp, you know Twitter. The extravagant, ornate collection, cast in head-to-toe ivory and blood-red, was a triumph of molding, draping, and decaying elegance. Fit for the elite of some post-apocalypse, dystopian future, the diaphanous dresses that ran the catwalk ranged from the highly-structured to minimalist silk slip dresses. Margiela's presentation further proves that more accessible couture doesn't mean a loss.
