The Noir Mood of Maison Margiela

In 1946, Nino Frank coined the term “film noir” to describe the American crime drama films which flooded into the French theatres in the summer following the German occupation of France. While the exact definition of “film noir” is inscrutable, its mood is distinct. Noir is an atmosphere as much as it’s a genre.
