Fall 2011: Maison Martin Margiela

4 Nov

There was no glimpse of cardboard in this collection — but that is not to say that Margiela played it safe. Rather than juxtaposing the intensely masculine with the feminine as he did so wonderfully last season, this collection was all about deconstruction. The clothes are literally coming off of the models — the zippers peeling and the skirts undone. What exactly is this referring to? The unravelling of the economy or the deconstruction of fashion? Does he align with Tom Ford in believing that the immediacy of viewing fashion is ruining the industry? Or have I read to many poems and he simply liked the idea of deconstruction? Whatever the solution may be — this was an interesting collection. The clothes often overpowered the models — proving to be quite bulky on their slim frames. The colors were magnificent and the different materials made really interesting looks. Margiela never provides a simple collection — they are always thought-provoking. What are your thoughts on this one?
