Maison Martin Margiela.




                       ARTISANAL FW14


Schiaparelli did the lobster with Dali in the 1930s, but then Antwerp came along, along with the crisis, and no more lobster on our closet-plate. Maison Martin Margiela introduces the amazing artisanal shrimp (not available in a drug store near you)!

With 90s sportswear references in baroque embroidered  faberg├ęs and Japanese bomber jackets, in bright colors screaming k-pop culture, the hybrid nature of this collection made for tons of good reviews and extra love-points by the margiela-obsessed. 

Showcasing traditionally embroidered motives in a Nintendo Gameboy graphics manner, the aura scale still tilted towards the modern age, despite the fact that most of the visuals and fabrics used scream weird lemon-pie-making grand-ma from 1910s Mars.

Adore to death and bath and beyond.                  leo
