Reworked, remixed and reassembled was how the Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2015 collection was all about. Basic pieces had the Margiela aesthetic which was about having fun with a little playfulness while still being understated at the same time.
The collection felt light with airy coats and parachute pants being shown on the runway. There was a mix of relaxed silhouettes to something very much defined giving variations to the collection. The Margiela man loves to mix and match with bottoms that were reworked with different fabrics on each side while with proportions. It was sort of a hybrid kind of bottom wear, showcasing Margiela’s love for deconstructed tailoring with a dash of humour while incorporating mismatch texture and fabrics.
The last few looks had colorful hues added with some pop art graffiti on sheer and skin-tight tops in flesh tones which completed the playfulness feel of the collection.
