fall prêt-à-porter, paris: maison martin margiela

by Jeremy Danté

if it’s one thing i know, it’s to expect the unexpected from maison martin margiela. this fall, the collection is noticeably more tame & more wearable than seasons past. while no extreme boxed silhouettes are seen this time; the fact that the margiela label has been continuing without margiela himself adds even more to the mystery that has made the house such a large success. a clean aesthetic is applied to the fall show season in paris this go-round; beautiful color & lengthen lines were seen throughout. while i will say that i hadn’t expected something this tame- im just glad these pieces are wearable. many aspects seen with other labels are represented in this collection as well, use of satin, fur & even use of gloves are seen. overall, the collection is noticeably more calm & almost, less imaginative when comparing collections from the past. i would like to see something more innovative with margiela, that’s what i’ve come to expect, amidst expecting the unexpected. strong collection & direction.
