This season’s Maison Margiela S/S17 runway show was practically made for social media. The looks were hyper activewear-inspired, a break from the normal, classic pared back silhouettes we are used to seeing in Paris. This was a catwalk show with a bang! Yoga mats were the new accessories du jour, attached to backpacks for safe keeping, and scuba fabrics were trotted out on mass. Vogue Runway has dubbed the collection ‘Haute Athleisure’, never a more apt description was uttered. This eccentric collection complete with alien style ears, visors and headsets, plus goat hoof footwear was possibly the most Instagrammed collection to date.
Here is our pick of the most daring looks spotted this SS17 season.
