It is the third this January to rebuilt the ides of couture. After victory of youth, bringing trainers and protectors to the catwalk Maison Martin Margiela brought a patch-work to highest fashion type.
Simplicity is the clue here. Gowns are replaced with T-shirt dresses, maxi dresses made as combined from printed sheets by Lloyd Wright, coates in floral paterns, with pictures, leather details and my favorite tops made from patch-workied inserts in shape of sailors tattooes. Every piece though looks amusing.
Collection was very forward thinking, openminded understanding of high tailoring. Bringing kitsch to the catwalk in form of golden shoes or mantioned already sailor's tattoes is brave move and is very controversial, but this is Maison Martin Margiela, known from conceptual attitude to fashion and no less would be expected from him
