Mood board: There were so many ideas in each look at Maison Margiela, that it was clear John Galliano’s brain is yet again in creative overdrive. From block-letter printed shirts, push-lock belts and embellished gloves to much stranger details like egg-shell shaped caps, funky coloured earpieces and entire leather jackets as sleeves, there are endless elements to uncover here.

Best in show: Surprisingly wearable items were many of the beige and pastel-hued trenchcoats, and the checked print that was used on skirts, jackets, short shorts and shirt dresses.

Finishing touches: The famous Margiela Tabi boots were given a new look in red and white or khaki prints, and even what seemed like Enlightenment-era portraiture. Velcro straps were added on as a fastening in addition to zips on some.
