maison martin margiela resort 2012

This is a maximalist collection in every sense of the word: oversized blazers, jackets and vests, maxi skirts and billowy wide-leg pants- most of which were sheer, so major! Even the accessories were large scale including the clutches and the round '70s-esque sunnies. Cool silk viscose fringe was used in the form of pseudo foxtails clipped to zippers, some even hanging from jacket lapels. These clothes lacked the conceptual elements that seasonal Margiela collections possess, which is not to say a terrible thing since resort collections are almost purely for sales. What the clothes did possess is wearability, which, can be a rare trait.
