Iconoclastic fashion designer and creative director John Galliano has once again eschewed the traditional runway format this season with a new video titled S.W.A.L.K. II, filmed in Tuscany and directed by Nick Knight.

S.W.A.L.K. II is a sequel to the summer film released during Haute Couture season and features Galliano explaining the significance of the various Margiela numbers. He then goes on to detail the tango, his main inspiration for the new collection, which is evoked in a red, white, and grey color palette.

The house has no problem flexing its crafty handiwork with epic cutting expressed in chivalrous tailoring silhouettes and muslin and tulle dresses that have been created with a circular cutting technique to give the effect of an arresting wet look. The film also goes further to bring viewers in to the Margiela universe by demonstrating how techniques developed in the artisanal collection have been specially industrialized for ready-to-wear.

S.W.A.L.K. II ends with an cataclysmic underwater wedding, which you can watch below.
