The Martin Margiela collection was hard to grasp. We went back and forth with our thoughts throughout the whole show. Was this experimental or beautiful? Were the designs glamorous or arty? Was it about deconstructing or was the focus on artisanal couture? Whatever message John Galliano intended to convey things weren’t what they seemed. There was so much more than met our eyes. Hidden spaces in fabrics, complete pieces of clothing barely visible. Structure seemed key in this collection, although even that was not crystal clear as Irina Djuranovic clearly deviated from that. The color palette of pastels, metallic and cobalt blue (matching the models make-up) appeared to be just as contrasting. While some looks appeared simplistic (hello potato sack dress), others were true show stoppers. Like an exotically embroidered black and purple number worn by Katya Ledneva that is still on our minds..
