Inside Maison Martin Margiela s/s 2015

There is always something interesting to spot in Maison Martin Margiela’s proposals –and its latest, ready-to-wear collection that was presented some weeks ago during Paris Fashion couldn’t be an exception. For s/s 2015, the brand continued its exploration of deconstructed forms, presenting a collection based on vintage Japanese dresses that were sliced-up, fastened together with ribbon ties and transformed into a short of skirt-trouser hybrids. The upcycled, asymmetrical pieces where worn over navy pants and were combined with sheer mesh tops, printed with sixties-inspired daisies –a motif that also appeared on over-painted skirts, coats and sunglasses.

On view there was also a series of navy pinstriped pieces, like a half-sliced tunic that was inspired by menswear tailoring, echoing the design team’s intention to recontextualize foundation garments. The collection was overall feminine and elegant, yet with the right amount of edge, proving that the house has managed, since Martin Margiela’s retirement in 2009, to maintain the Belgian designer’s innovative spirit alive. And with John Galliano being recently appointed as creative director of Margiela, taking over the leadership of all lines, the brand definitely has a bright future ahead of it!
