    Clothes are rarely what they appear chez Margiela. A case in point: 3D trompe l’oeil zippers and buttons achieved using a technique involving silicone moulds. Much of this minimal collection was constructed from rectangles of fabric.
    The more experimental pieces, such as tailored jackets and leather outerwear, had an armor-like stiffness, especially blazers fronted with leather panels resembling waistcoats and a gladiator-style grid jacket, built from brown leather strips. Less conceptual fare also stood out, including a terrific tuxedo jacket, loose and summery pants and a trench coat.

    Somehow drawn to the strong apparel structure and textures, it's a really good menswear collection.

    The cage jacket is like an instant MUST-get for me. But everything else is quite ordinary. I think there's a missing element here

    these jackets are quite sharp. they'd compliment the conservative wardrobe of many billionaire types especially in cities like london over great superluxe sportswear.

    Really, really good. I'd wear most/all of it. I love the leather.

    i guess it's the details that will make it interesting.

    however, it really lacks that energy that used to be in Margiela's menswear. just too clean, too slick...but hey that's what it's become.

    I went to the retrospective exhibition, and they actually had the nerve to put the f---ing new perfume bottle on display in the iconic pieces section!!!

    The last couple of years have been like a "how-to" in destroying something's integrity and reputation.

    ^actually the scent,along with that beautifully edited book,are the last things MM was involved with.

    but i agree with you about how they've destroyed the integrity of this house. it just looks like pure profit material with loads of gimmicks,not the creative house it once was.

    As been said, the last jacket is the best of the collection. But it's just a boring quote of Margiela. He has done VERY exciting stuff.

    Though this is quite interesting from the perspective of a potential consumer. It sparks interest, while being wearable. But weak for Margiela standards.
