How very prescient of John Galliano. In a week which saw most of Europe blanketed by snow and  reeling from harsh winter weather, the models at Maison Margiela were more than prepared to face whatever the elements could throw at them. Here, the focus was mainly on outerwear and the models were swathed in plastics and technical fabrics. Anoraks, cagoules and deconstructed trench coats were designed to envelope their bodies and protect them from the elements. Hats were pulled low and sweaters pulled high. In addition to the plastic caplets, there was an unusual use of asymmetry with the use of a one-armed sleeve warmer.
