Frankly speaking, the art of Maison Martin Margiela is niche and focused on the very pro customers. Austerity, minimalism and more than small interest in trends is not likeable for everybody. You can either love Margiela or hate him, but there is no way to ignore his clothes. Personally I would love this Belgian designer especially for his artistic soul so visible in collections and catwalks.
Martin sets his very own rules and, by ignoring fashion mainstream, paradoxically he provokes it to monitor M.M. Margiela.
Margiela is known for his upside-down take on fashion—read deconstructed jackets, exposed seams and hems, and oversize proportions. We can so them also in his fall winter 2011 collection. Models, in various age and so damn charismatic presented audience classic suits paired with light turtle necks or oversize shearling coats like those from the Polish Zakopane.
But the truly great pearl of the whole collection is the coat. It mesmerizes by its facture, details and cut. Margiela knows that even the inconspicuous button could easily be the beautiful adornment. This collection, even if it is similar to the ones from the past, is really in Margiela's style. And the fans won't be disappointed.
