i like that long patchwork silk dress(interpreted from one of my favorite collections,spring 92,in which he recycled silk head scarves from various periods) and one of margiela's signature men's pieces,that waistcoat made of belts.
i dunno,that's what i wonder as well. who is going to buy this? it seems a little more niche and esoteric in spirit than the typical garb people gravitate toward at H&M. i mean for the devoted original margiela fans who never got to experience the earliest of his work,this will give a piece of that,if just in spirit. but i'll be curious if it ultimately creates the same kind of frenzy CdG and the like have.
but this kind of ticks me off though....this is NOTHING like what we're getting in any of the mainlines and it just questions if they can utilize the old spirit of margiela in this context,why the flipping hell can they not bring a bit of that back into the primary maison?? and if publicity is what they are after,don't you think the heads are kind of misrepresenting the work they're actually doing? that feels a bit dishonest and that's not something i would have ever associated with MMM.
