MM6 MAISON MARGIELA unveils Colorama Japanese Bag

Designed after a trip to Japan, this bag is inspired by the centuries-old art of origami. Its triangular silhouette and buttons on the corners allow it to fold back on itself to change shape, like a sheet of paper that becomes a swan. Soft materials, minimalist look and unconventional style turned it into a timeless cult in continuous evolution.

The mini version was revealed on the SS22 collection reusing all the codes of the historical version and creating a complete offer around this product.

Like an ode to freedom and long summer nights, the Japanese mini tote comes in a colour palette reminiscent of sunsets, sunrises, summer afternoons.

The full grainy leather appears to be natural-looking and is used this season for this capsule, with a stronger structure and consider as more durable with a soft, silky feel

This capsule will propose 8 colors to be delivered in stores from January 16th at MM6 Maison Margiela e-commerce sites and boutiques, as well as in selected multibrand stores. This collection will be available in Japan mid-February with retail pop-up.

It has been 25 years since MM6 line was launched by MAISON MARGIELA in 1997, and is today a part of the OTB group. MM6 design and collections are a subtle nod to the Maison’s archive while standing entirely on their own.

Sartorial conventions are routinely bent and broken. Conceptual essentials are created using unique fabric treatments, resulting in a distinctive wardrobe that spans All-Gender ready-to-wear, footwear, accessories and leather goods. A horizontal line of white stitches attaching the MM6 label to the back of the garment is distinctively visible from the exterior.
