The last day of digital shows at Paris Couture Week started with John Galliano’s initial teaser for his Maison Margiela Artisanal Coed Collection.
Galliano will show the collection in a manner that couldn’t be done live (at least no one has tried it): in installments. Today’s teaser will be followed by two others, on July 11 and 15 and the culmination, on July 16, which a brand statement referred to as “a final revelation.”
Guo Pei brought a herd of giraffes, elephants and zebras to life via three-dimensional embroideries in an artfully crafted but cartoonlike collection.
Bouchra Jarrar’s short black-and-white film, directed by Marcel Hartmann, takes place mostly at her home, where she unveiled her comeback collection. She cast twin sisters Aissa and Aida Kane to bring her quiet, impeccable clothes to life, which they do with much tenderness, whether hugging on the sofa, or rambling through a park and laughing.
“I wanted to express vitality,” said Jarrar, who also found salvation during lockdown in the Bois de Boulogne, where she took her new Australian Shepherd, Nash, for frequent walks. Watch out for the pup’s brief, heart-melting cameo in her charming film.
