Maison Martin Margiela’s Magnificence

This fall 2012 Couture collection took some risks with some traditional, and not so traditional looks.

The first one will notice of the collection is the elaborate masks (a traditional Margiela motif). The models faces were incognito and there was no shortage of detailed craftsmanship with these products. Embroidered with hundreds and hundreds of crystals, beads, and lace the masks were as extravagant and accentuating as anything I have scene this fall.

As for the collection the focus was on the upper half of the body, sleeveless jackets based of the 1905 tailcoat look to the elegance of the crystal doorknob. This being said, the lower half of the body was defined by lace that had been sourced from all across France. The brand crafted straight-leg trousers that supported the vintage cuts above the waistline beautifully.

The collection also used an interesting set of materials outside of the basis for couture (silk, chiffon, etc…) including baseball gloves turned into vests and a coat constructed from a windsurfing sail (which Margielas show notes stated took over 51 hours).

The theme of the show could be defined as “anachronistic silhouettes.”

The collection concluded with a new-age neon-orange garment that was a splash of neo-Technicolor that summed up the edgy ness of the show quite well. This was not your ordinary couture collection and from it we can see how well Maison Martin Margiela has adapted to the 21st century without loosing their classic motives. Utilizing recycled materials and going through a century of inspiration sourced across Europe, this years fall couture was an amazing show!
