Maison Martin Margiela SS2013

Feb 15, 13 Maison Martin Margiela SS2013

The creator is unpredictable and his unpredictability is predictable. He is invisible to flashes of photo cameras. He’s like a ghost, hiding under a mask of mystery. At the Spring-Summer 2013 show of the most mystical fashion house Maison Martin Margiela the masks were on the faces of all models. At the previous shows the faces were already hidden under the nylon or wig locks, and this time these were masks embroidered with beads and organza bows. Transparent fabrics also wore flower prints, beads, sequins.

The collection was named Artisanal, and we must recognize that it reflected very much the style. Here and there the edges were left unworked and threads were sticking out. The shoes, those famous white shoes, became part of the collection.

Creating their collections, Maison Martin Margiela love to use materials and objects hardly associated with Haute Couture. This time dresses were made of shiny foil, reminding candy wrappers. The urge to touch them was uncontrollable. A refined gentleman, sitting opposite to me, managed to touch one of the dresses. However, realizing that this was noticed, he just shrugged his shoulders as if to say that he was not able to resist. And I understood him perfectly. This fabric of square foil wrappers sewn together tempted our minds and hands to reach out to it. The coat-dress shined with silver and some craziness, with that special, unreachable and attractive style Maison Martin Margiela.
