Maison Margiela releases their ‘Artisnal’ Collection, which we find very breathtaking and modern. It shows purely what Paris has to offer! Great shapes, bright colors and pure elegance that is ‘food’ to the eyes.

A process of  discovery, returning to one’s roots. Piece by piece, deconstructing and constructing a new story for Margiela.

A deep commitment to the extraordinary possibilities of  the Maison’s Atelier and the art of  Haute Couture.

Approaching tailoring, techniques, craftsmanship like a new explorer, or painter. One who sees beauty in things that are often taken for granted, giving everything a newly enriched life.

A powerful and fierce yet refined mix of  fabrics and materials. Stripped down, or reborn together in startling and unexpected ways.

New direction given with play on proportion and sartorial rules. Languid, sweeping. Precise tailoring. A new fuller, revealing silhouette.

Eyes wide open in wonderment to a veritable Cabinet de Curiosités. A jigsaw of  lacquered shells reminiscent of  Arcimboldo style figures. A miniature battalion charging across a black velvet shoulder. Pearls that bring teardrops of  memories to the face.

Looking through the glass, discovering an elusive, rare even arrestingly strange new beauty, of  muses who nonchalantly arouse your senses.

The Finale of  Toiles. The Cabine marching in honest testimony of  the process, the trials and errors, the time and emotion behind each cut, each line, each vision.

A world deep in its past but with promises of  the future..
