Anyway...the fashion press decided to print that Margiela was "exploting homeless children"...and that concept was never Margiela's intention. Basically...what he was trying to communicate was the subject of neglect...how we all now live in a very disposable society...hence, the "abandoned" playground. Most of the pieces in the show were actually found objects that had been discarded...but, through Margiela's hands...he breathed "new-life" into things that people had disposed of. Margiela is very anti-fashion...and that is the quintessential "ideal" that I aspire to....hahaha!!
that doesn't surprise me very much. the press,especially mainstream fashion press,can be rather ignorant. sometimes they just never get it. i love the anti about him as well. i just think margiela is a purist and he's got an actual vision...ideas....and makes clothes for people with a personality.
