Eyes Wide Shut-esque gold faces at Rick Owens yesterday, and a pack of technicolor Droogs today? Apparently, French fashion is having a Kubrick moment.
At John Galliano’s first ready-to-wear show as creative director of Maison Margiela, we could not help but think of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. Models grimaced and tromped down the runway (yes, there are videos) with extreme and colorful makeup lining their eyes, like a female version of the pack of delinquents in the 1971 classic.
1971—fashion just can’t seem to get over that year.
Mr. Galliano’s inaugural outing with Maison Margiela was, by all accounts, a theatrical and bold success. And if this is what the Droogs’ complementary girl gang would look like, someone needs to get the rights for a Clockwork Orange sequel ASAP. Click through our slideshow to see all the looks.
