The white blazer is very nice.
extraordinary as always. am i the only who thinks this is the collection that mmm truly pours his heart and soul into these days? i love the other collections but to me this is pure margiela.
yes, I was just in awe looking at the pictures.. I love how the theatrical elements are reduced completely for his Maison collection and it's so short in numbers, and fabrics one would guess!, but the result reaches me closer than anything else he does every season, you can see that every garment, no matter how tiny it is, it's an identity apart, so intricate and.. new.
I can imagine one of these outfits in the pages of Vogue Paris.
I don't like it very much, but the jeans one is interesting. It slightly remind me a JPG dress, don't remember the season.
That's what I've thought so far.
I've never really watched a HC show of his before, this will take a bit of digesting and HQ's for me to really really love it.
The blazer is just sooooo fantastic though... ah....
I really enjoy that it doesn't really matter who the model is, he has us focus on the clothes and really brings forth their representation. I adore that he does this-- it just makes me appreciate the clothes rather than looking at the make-up and the models first.
Unbiased couture, I love it.
This looks familiar...I love it though.
I really like the idea of covering the models faces.
The blazer looks like it's made of a foam of some kind - are there any exlanations of this collection?
I agree completely.
I like the clothes a lot actually, and I think the denim piece is the most striking. Incredibly beautiful.
However...I know it's trademark MMM...but the masks are getting a bit tiresome for me. I don't mind them, per say, but I think he should try something different
i love what he's done to the leather jacket.. those incised lines..
and the shirt with the gun pointing to the star, seems to be made of paper
i agree they all look so different and new
but not separate from eachother, they really form one collection
something unifying them together... maybe the coarse textures? i also like the beige tight worn underneath
Really love it, like almost everything from Margiela esp.recently. Those first two jackets in post #1 are sensational. The white one looks like 3D!
Thank you for the pictures, Mullet & maffam. I'm happy to see it as a presentation. I always wanted to see Margiela's HC with more light.
The same presentation! Poor models! HAHA!
But I thought this shows lot of texture as compared to typical MMM. Not sure I'm loving it, as it doesn't really look that conventional couture. But again, nothing's conventional for MMM. So...
That white blazer... I am LUSTING over it...
I also like the presentation of the models.
i am in love with the shredded denim asymmetrical jumpsuit!!!!
lil kim needs to rock that shat
wow...it's absolutely amazing.
As is typical of all Margiela's artisanal collections, again, this one is spectacular.
As far as Margiela covering the modesl's faces, it's a tradition he's been doing since the beginning of his career, that being, 1989.
Margiela does go back and forth nowadays...hiding their identity, or showcasing their identity...but non-identity is the true spirit of MMM...Including his very elusive, self.
Throughout several of margiela's collections...he has devised a number of ways to hide the model's identity. For instance, one collection presented the models with long-ish hair...but their hair was combed forward, from the back...totally concealing their faces. Also, another collection presented the models with raccoon-like covered eyes, but atop of the eyes, they wore Wayfarer-style sunglasses, painted black, with the lenses popped-out. The sunglasses contained to glass within the frames...but, considering the models had their eyes painted black...it gave the illusion they were wearing sunglasses.
Another collection that comes to mind was from one of his "over-sized" collections. The models all wore headbands...but, attached to the headbands, were long bangs that obliterated the eyes. The headband could actually be purchased as an accessory, too. As far as the usage of hair being used in Margiela's collections...it's a common thread that is presented in several Margiela collections. I own a hair-necklace that can be worn around the neck. Basicly, it's a long lock of hair attached to a round metal ring. and the metal ring is attached to a common black shoelace. Again, a generic shoelace, worn as a necklace..is another common theme for MMM. One of the dresses presented in this particular collection, is made of 400 pairs of shoelaces, done in white as opposed to black.
^The non identity is what makes MMM,it'd be so weird to see the models faces I think,the focus is 100% on the clothes and not that make up or the fancy totally irrelevent runway
I love the white blazer and the red dress
