The icon of the alternative music scene Björk knows how to surprise with unusual stylistic solutions. The artist became the heroine of the cover of Vogue Scandinavia, for which she posed in a couture outfit from John Galliano’s spring collection for Maison Margiela, which the magazine called “the cult dress of the year”. The outfit was first shown on the catwalk in January and caused quite a sensation: the multi-coloured, semi-transparent corset dress with a complex cut is made of “real human hair”, according to the brand’s press release.

Galliano’s new collection, according to the artist himself, is inspired by “the underside of Paris” from the portraits of Hungarian photographer Brassai, who captured the “night walkers” of the French capital.

By the way, the first celebrity to try on an outfit from the new Maison Margiela collection was Kendall Jenner, who appeared in one of the line’s dresses at Vanity Fair’s Oscars party. Björk did not “walk” outfits from the collection in public, but admitted that she still received one of the luxurious models as a gift. On social media, she thanked Galliano and said she was “honoured to wear these clothes”.

“When I wore the Margiela dress, I realised that the circle had closed. It was very profound,” she shared on social media.
