The Maison Martin Margiela showcased their SS13 collection at the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild which they had covered entirely in white plastic (ceiling and windows included!) and staff wore white lab coats….mmmm rather forensically dramatic….but this is fashion, there just has to be an element of drama, non? Especially when it comes to the mysterious house of MMM….Oh we love you for this!
Out came abstract ball gowns, twisted cocktail dresses, trouser suits, exaggerated bustiers and shoulder length gloves – all with utter simple silhouettes that actually made each garment more flattering than the next…. We were left sweating (either from the heat of sitting inside a gigantic plastic bag or from the sheer beauty of the collection….but probably the latter)
Luckily we could use our thermo sensitive invitations as fans to cool down from all the gasps and clicks….
Even the ambiance outside the venue was exciting – everybody wants a piece of MMM’s enticing world…..
