This season, Galliano re-invents the slouchy silhouette with an expansive range of outerwear. At a glance, the collection is filled with an overwhelming number of coats, right for any occasion. Whether it is for formalwear or the countryside rainy weather, the pieces excite the tactile and visual senses with their soft yet structured silhouettes. Galliano’s effortlessly chic aesthetic is prominent throughout the spring clothes, or as the house prefers to call it the Avant-Premiere line.
Margiela Resort 2022 is inspired by Galliano’s latest “Artisanal” collection, a co-ed Spring/Summer collection that was an ode to the post-pandemic youth. Through the medium of film, Galliano transports viewers into a disruptive disposition, filled with illusions on a meta-level. The uniqueness of Galliano’s vision for the Resort collection trickles down from the desirable and dramatic aesthetic from the Artisanal collection.
Slouch silhouettes continue to play a large part this season, with oversize “grandad” cardigans and rolled-up “school-uniform” shorts becoming a staple in the collection. In line with the theme of versatility, the collection also features reversible outdoor jackets and trench coats that can easily be paired with formal pieces or as standalone utility outwear. Those who enjoy the art of layering would find this collection fit for inventive silhouettes. Oversized frocks are paired with lengthy trenchcoats, while tailored blazers are paired with boxer-like shorts and knee-high boots.
