Maison Martin Margiela Haute Couture Fall Winter 2012
This Maison Martin Margiela couture collection was BAD. Depressing, in fact, as I expect to be impressed by this brand. This was a mish mash of Balmain-esque embellishment, tacky sheer pants, and mangled ideas that didn’t tell a story. And the one thing I did like should hardly be called an “I love,” it is more of an “I like.”
a patchwork of lace.
an uninteresting white suit. We all know Margiela does great tailoring, but can’t you buy off-the-rack Margiela tailoring if you want something simple like this? What makes it couture?
sheer pants. WHAT IS WITH ALL THE SHEER PANTS?!?! Seriously, who wears sheer pants?
a jacket that looks more Balmain than Margiela. And more sheer pants!!!!
