Continuity between collections isn’t always a hallmark of the Couture offerings. But it goes without saying that the Fall 2014 couture collection…
Maison Martin Margiela
Maison Martin Margiela: The fashion set prefers to inhabit digs that are artfully decorated; a colorful backdrop to their lives if you will. With Maison Martin Margielaâ€™s latest Couture showing, home-apropos textiles have found their way onto the runway. Models shrouded with face masks (this yearâ€™s version is a sheer black with applique eyes) served as mannequins for the richly textured fabrics. Raw hems and unfinished fabrics hinted at a wealth of history. The likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, Raoul Dufy, and Paul Gauguinâ€™s work got translated into oversized coats and pant suits.

Maison Martin Margiela: The Maison Martin Margiela design team’s take on menswear was anything but ordinary. Suiting came in pieces like a black zip jacket with enormous oversize shirt cuffs, done up with canary yellow brushstrokes, which matched the slouchy trou streaked with paint stripe. A white buttondown featuring magenta megacuffs paired nicely with slouchy brushstroke pants. Pinstripes peppered the collection, whether in vest-laden painsuiting with a knotted halter top that resembles a men’s tie or a skirt suit with armbands and a scalloped skirt fashioned to look like the curved hem of a suit jacket that had a bit of a mod look when paired with black calf-length booties. Eveningwear came in bannerlike silk columns with indecipherable writing cut up and hodgepodged together. Ever the trailblazers, it’s not surprising the enigmatic Margiela maison would put forth a translating-challenged message onto the runways.
