Brand Spotlight: MM6 Maison Margiela

Posted by Sarah Evans on

Though you may not find yourself familiar with MM6, Maison Margiela might ring a bell. The namesake brand of Belgian designer Martin Margiela, was established in 1988 and continues the legacy of the late Martin through both of the aforementioned brands to this day.

The Strapless Dress in Black features black sleeves that can be worn for an off the shoulder look or left to hang to the sides for a blowy sleeveless look.

MM6, established in 1997, though rebranded through the years, is defined as a diffusion line; inspired by the Maison Margiela main line, but more accessible to the everyday shopper. Though the lower price point targets a younger audience, the designs featured don’t strictly cater to a young crowd. Familiar and classic designs like high top sneakers and tailored shirt dresses can find homes among the closets of a variety of ages. The subtle brand identity, unlike that of Adidas or Nike, features an embroidered “6” and the notable embroidered horizontal line carried over from the main line.

The Logo 6 Shirt Dress in Midnight features a high low hem, and an oversized fit. The longer back hem, and roomy fit, provide total comfort while the deep navy and classic tailoring bring refinement to the look.

While not your typical womenswear, featuring fitted or revealing cuts, the most recent pieces in store share more characteristics like billowy silhouettes and tailoring inspired by menswear. Masculine cuts countered by light feminine fabric and draping prove that comfort takes the reins. Although, there is an undeniable elegance that's equally prevalent throughout the collection. There is a practicality that comes with each piece too, whether in the form of thick cylindrical heels, platform shoes, or high low dress hems.

The Boatneck Top in Off-White is a gorgeous, pleated blouse with a matching Side Drape Midi Skirt. 100% unlined Polyester enhances the flowing qualities of this set. Wear it as separates to dress it down, or as a set for a Goddess-like evening fit.

No sacrifices are made when choosing to wear MM6. Peak wearability takes these pieces from the workplace and beyond. Their contemporary take on classic styles crush everyday trends and will speak to those seeking comfort, wearability, and uncomprimising style.
