Paris Fashion Week: Maison Martin Margiela

The Maison Margiela Margiela show this afternooon at the Palais de Tokyo was one that addressed the concept of dressing in a way that Margiela does so interestingly. Exploring the notion of wrapping and unwrapping, with peeling layers at front and back and boots with fishnet tights wrapped on the outside, the collection featured rich and soft fabrics (leather, cashmere, pony) and colours (raspberry, aqua, lavender) against powerful black looks, some with beautiful 20s flapper-style beading.
