(PARIS) Maison Martin Margiela
Anonymity was the word at Maison Martin Margiela’s runway, as each of the 19 models was ornamented with fancy face-obscuring masks. With tiny floral detailing, incredible beading, and a fashion-forward mosaic, these are easily the chicest face masks out there. Another unexpected hit from the couturier? Jeans...and not just a single pair! The baby blue denims hit low on the waist and were casually cropped to a capri length, rolled up to reveal a pair of platform knee-high boots. As for shirts? Those were totally optional, instead replaced with intricately beaded chest-plates, silk capes or a few pieces of heavily embroidered fabric. One top was constructed fro a handful of precious stones tied together with a simple black ribbon, in what could be a major wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. On the actual couture front, there was a smattering of detailed evening gowns and coats paired with long black silk gloves. A trio of jackets in salmon, pale blue, and severe black all featured floral hems and managed to be absolutely wearable and completely adorable.
