Galliano has been appointed creative director for Martin Margiela.
With the controversy around Galliano aside, he was and is still a massive talent in the design world. But my real interest is why, after 12 years without ever disclosing who was (a team or singular person) designing for Margiela, have they decided to put a face to the brand now?
Margiela has been one of my favorite brands for years and I even kind of loved the fact that this was a brand based on the clothes and not who was designing them. While I’m not sold on the idea just yet, I think a change is always good.
Galliano’s first collection will be for couture and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with.
