High fashion label Maison Margiela infuses its 2018 collection with a tech-friendly aesthetic through recurring iPhone holsters. The phone-accommodating embellishments act as subtle details to the futuristic silhouettes. From straps that tie devices to the model’s ankle to ones that are more conveniently attached to the wrist, Maison Margiela’s 2018 presentation definitely carries a tech alien-style avant-garde vibe.
The incorporation of iPhone holsters on the runway is not the first time the designers have referenced the hypothetical way of life in the progressing digital age. Maison Margiela has always aimed in presenting a future-forward couture line-up that references tech-friendly aspects and boasts otherworldly silhouettes. For example, during previous runway shows, the label has encouraged flash phone photography that allowed the audience to reveal beautiful holographic materials that otherwise seem ordinary.
