In an expectedly unexpected move, Creative Director John Galliano presented his fall 2019 collection for Maison Margiela on a simple white runway at Paris Fashion Week. Rolling out a collection that was similarly minimal with inventive tailoring and silhouettes in mostly black and khaki, the show worked its way up to a series of standout looks in the form of multicolored boots and paneling on coats.
It was business as usual on the runway when, serving up look 30 with gusto, model Leon Dame pumped down the runway with a disruptive, moody gait that totally stole the show. Clad in a pair of printed leggings and a cropped coat, the German model brought enough attitude for the whole cast of traditionally dead-pan runway walkers. Rocking a head of heavily gelled down hair and clutching a python bag at his hip, Dame's energy and commitment is a big mood for Fashion Month (and beyond).
After hitting the end of the runway, the model gave a sharp look over his shoulder before pacing back and basically dropping the proverbial mic. The man with the meanest walk at Margiela is no longer a mystery — get into the fierce model's Instagram (@leondame). Now, walk!
