In September of last year, John Galliano launched his first scent for Maison Margiela, which he has helmed creatively since 2014. The signature fragrance, dubbed Mutiny, was fronted by a diverse group of muses including Teddy Quinlivan, Willow Smith, and Hanne Gaby Odiele.
Today, the Mutiny manifesto, which Galliano previously revealed as "an expression of the non-conformist values of a defiant new generation," gets the film treatment thanks to five international artists who interpreted the manifesto in their own way, all of whom were tapped by LA-based content studio 3RDSOL.

Each of these five artists were chosen for their embodiment of the Mutiny values such as creativity, diversity and individuality, according to the company. These names include: Jazzelle Zanaughtti (@uglyworldwide), Detroit-born artist and model; Nadia Lee Cohen (@nadialeelee), a British art photographer, filmmaker and self-portrait artist; Corianna and Brianna Dotson (Coco and Breezy, @cocoandbreezy) two twin sisters born in Minnesota who moved to New York as teenagers; River Gallo (@rivergallo), a Salvadoran-American filmmaker, actor, writer, model and intersex advocate; and MX (@1010_mx), a Colombian-born artist.
All five of them had total freedom to express themselves in their own short films, all of which were revealed today. The non-conformist attitudes and subversive individual approach in these videos recall Martin Margiela's original anti-establishment ethos, as he broke free from many of fashion's conventions at the time.
See, below, for a complete look at each of the videos, all of which were created by the five artists and feature each of them as the protagonists.
