The luxury label presented a co-ed runway show for spring/summer 2019, showcasing both men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections. Margiela’s creative director John Galliano announced the move back in June, shortly after he unveiled Margiela’s Artisanal men’s show.
“The rest of the collection will be shown with the women’s in September as a co-ed show,” he said on his In Memory Of... With John Galliano podcast, explaining his decision to create a men’s couture collection in addition to a ready-to-wear range. “I just got so excited with the changing landscape of menswear and the new energy that's coming in at different houses. … I hope this is a journey to help us discover a new sensuality, a new sexuality, breaking down pre-conceived ideas of what's masculine and what’s feminine through cutting skills.”
The spring/summer 2019 runway show coincides with the launch of Mutiny, Galliano’s first fragrance with the house since he joined in 2015.
