Chic Report: For loyalists of Martin Margiela’s controversial, anti-fashion fashion, the avant garde designer’s fall collection delivered. As employees wearing sterile white lab coats served editors wine in plastic cups, models emerged in looks relying heavily on asymmetry, from a one-shouldered netted dress over a bodysuit, to flowy, slit-up-to-there jersey dresses in camel, black, and leopard print. Other standouts included leather boot leggings and a parade of over-the-top dramatic necklines, as seen in a sweater mini-dress with a shoulder-width turtleneck, and a severe, jagged-collared black blazer.
