In an abandoned train station just south of Milan, MM6 Maison Margiela presented a collection of dualities for Spring/Summer 2020. Following the idea that multiple identities can exist within a single garment, the designs looked to the wedding of John Lennon and Yoko Ono for inspiration, embodied in a number of bridal-inspired looks that were infused with a rock ’n’ roll flair. Models marched the concrete runway to the beat of their own drum (literally), each carrying a personal speaker blasting sounds like church bells, honking horns, chirping birds, and rock music. Playing with the boundaries of formal and casual dress, the collection featured looks like a floor-length, voluminous ruffled skirt that read “better half,” worn with a bridal veil and cropped sweatshirt; an oversized tuxedo worn with a t-shirt, sneakers, and Lennon-esque glasses; and a long denim skirt paired with a graphic top, elbow-high gloves, and matching white satin boots.
