The Maison Martin Margiela Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection opened the fourth day of Pairs Haute Couture Fashion Week with loads of edginess, drama and extravagance, something that is quite normal for couture fashion, as after all it means high-end complex designs that can be donned only at equally elaborate parties. And since tastes and preferences differ a lot, couture fashion needs to be replenished with more styles and ideas, other than those heavenly evening gowns and eccentric designs. Exactly this was the task of the luxury Maison Martin Margiela house, which gave a new definition to couture with innovative creative style solutions that can hardly go by unnoticed.
Searching, reforming and reviving seems to have been the basic style philosophy of Maison Martin Margiela since 1988, the creative designers of which don’t have a problem to give a new meaning even to simple jeans, a piece of latex or rubber trousers. Mixing outworldy edginess with a vintage vibe, the high-end brand cast a series of Chinoiserie-embroidered evening gowns split away at the back to reveal the jeans worn beneath, as well as rubber shorts, trenches, fab satin gown-wraps with intricate floral embroidery that came matched with rubber boots for a real statement!
Modernity was definitely the message of the Maison Martin Margiela Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection, since it took one of the most practical and favorite pieces of the moment, denim, and updated it with a couture flair. There were 19 jaw-dropping looks demonstrated, each of which was complemented with awe-inspiring mask-headpieces that were completely covering the faces of the models with lace, precious stones, nylon, silk or floral appliqués. This is definitely going to be the favorite accessory of Lady Gaga this season!
Wholly, the Maison Martin Margiela Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection is a combination of contrasting elements, such as smooth leather and colorful draped dresses, Oriental robes, guipure jackets with flower decorations contrasting against faded denim. Avant-garde is hard to ever die, as far as we have the sparkling mind of the Mainson Martin Margiela fashion house!
