While I am aware that these patterns will need to be altered for the 3-D models I create, I have created them inspired by Groucho Marx and John Galliano’s careers, as well as utilizing Eda Akaltun’s art style to product the works.
The first pattern is a fairly basic colour blocking pattern that mimicks with Marx’s iconic glasses in a diagonal line. The second is reminiscent of Marx’s career on NBC whilst he was hosting the show You Bet Your Life, using various symbolisms the iconic microphone of his held. The third pattern is the iconic Marx cigar, however in the center sticker, it has “
€1.17m” in its space - referring to the amount of money as a fine John Galliano had to pay back to Dior for harming their reputation during his anti-sematic rant. The fourth and final pattern is somewhat connotative - the pattern itself may be synonymous with the national socialist SS-logo, on trend with the topic of Galliano’s anti-sematic rant, as well as the Spanish word malévolo, translated as “malicious” or “spiteful” as in an interview about the situation, Galliano was quoted saying:
I chose the Spanish version of the word to reference Galliano’s background in Gibraltar.

Maison Margiela - Fall 2017 #PFW - Paris Fashion Week
A coleção mais fácil e comercial que o John Galliano já fez desde que assumiu a direção criativa da Maison Margiela, mas não deixa de surpreender, os recortes e vazados em algumas peças criam uma ilusão de estampa muito interessante. Os códigos da Margiela foram ainda mais explorados.
Vários clássicos foram apresentados de forma “reconstruída”, como o Trench Coat e o cockktail dress, que deram as caras nessa coleção de uma maneira interessante por conjugar os ponto de vista da Margiela e do John Galliano.
