Maison Martin Margiela Mens F/W 08.09 Paris
celebrating his 20th Anniversary

Quote:
PARIS: The metallic badge said it all: 20 years of Martin Margiela creating the iconoclastic and fantastic. The Belgian designer, who has not made a public appearance in more than a decade, has reached a landmark anniversary. He celebrated with fine tailoring and inserts of edgy elements. (Think of a "barbed wire" vest made of rubbery tubes.)

At Maison Martin Margiela's 20th anniversary show, there were tailored coats and jackets -- each piece wittily hidden behind an open newspaper with a photo image of the garment.

check out those brilliant shoes!!

i think this might be the best collection he's done in some seasons. more later from catwalking.

This looks interesting. Margiela pieces, at least for me, always come to life when examining them in person. I've come across many things I see in the lookbook and I think I hate it, then I see it in person and love it.
Would love to see that leather jacket without the damned red V.

it's actually one of his archival pieces....one of the standout motocross jackets from his first 10 collection.

I love the barbed wire vest. And those sunglasses are even more tempting here than the women's show last season.

no, he was appointed as the menswear director in 2005, before that he was designing MMM 6. Wasn't too happy with all the changes he made, or maybe it was renzo rosso & staff international pushing the Margiela menswear into a more commercial direction. Now it seems that the collection is back on track. more good old artisanal than something that could have a diesel tag...
