Maison Martin Margiela
Fall/Winter 2012 – 2013
Available now at 10 Corso Como.
Maison Martin Margiela collection is conceived of apparently uncoherent cuts and volumes. The shapes and construction of each piece of clothing derives from a specific gesture: attitudes such as ‘over the shoulder,’ ‘hands in pockets,’ and ‘stand-up collar’ inspire new, oversize volumes. Zip and pins capable of altering the manifest shape of garmets. Silhouettes are generous and the palette is subdued. A coat that can turn into a duvet overcome the ordinary conception of clothes, resulting in a cerebral and thought-provoking collection.
