Shorts Story: Maison Margiela Men’s Fall 2016

With its well-judged pairing of revisited menswear staples with tight-fitting Lycra tops and cycling shorts, Maison Margiela’s irresistible fall collection was a bouncy leap from the brand’s lukewarm outing last June.

This men’s line was designed by a team before John Galliano gives it his imprimatur, and they were up to the challenge, showing a canny ability to translate Margiela’s message of classics subversion for the 3.0 reboot. The many standout pieces included elongated sleeveless duffle coats, knee-length biker jackets, a trench coat with frayed hems, and patchwork pants.
