Please Share Your Thoughts....

Because we are all fashionistas at heart, I’m sure the massive swirling banter about the Maison Martin Margiela 20th anniversary collection is not a mystery to any of you. A catalog of the past 20 years worth of hits, pointed shoulder pads from 06 to the 05 debut of circular cut leather, this collection was a collaboration of the old and the new.

Now, as a designer at heart I understand the need for shock appeal and the need to send a message through your work, however I personally feel a bit of eeriness to this collection. Something about the “incognito” models with their face shielded by nylons, wigs and scarves it just gave me a twinge of the creeps. On the other end of the spectrum, by having the models remain a mystery through the show the focus could be put on the clothing as it was intended.

All in all, I have to say that Margin Margiela really struck a cord with this collection. however frightening some of the looks may be, the design rules loud and proud and did not miss a beat. From the breath taking silhouettes to the gorgeous fabrics and draping to the dark atmosphere of the show, it was a hit which ever angle you look at it. Thoughts?

may be the collection is that poor they decided to distract attention with hair?

This is horrible! How sad! What too over the top and ugly for me.
