Fashion needs to be kept simple and yet contemporary and no one makes this concept work more than Maison Martin Margiela. It has to be a fashion week show that I long to attend. Take the t-shirt for example. Say a black one for the purpose of illustration. What do you imagine? Yep, you got it. Same as me. Round neck, short sleeve, lightweight jersey, ill fitting (for the most part). But now if I imagine a t-shirt from MMM, well you get a whole new look. Layered jersey, slash or a v neckline, liquid-like movement to the fabric. It takes simple fashion to a level of lust-after desire.
I like that the de-constructed look of the constructed pieces. It does make sense, trust me. Every piece looks like it has been inspired by the modern woman, who works but plays and needs versatility in her wardrobe. MMM is available on a great website called The Corner that stocks nearly every designer imaginable and will get it straight to your door. Sofa shopping of a premium standard.
