Very different forms of art come closer and closer to the design solutions the top popular and creative designers choose for this amazing array of couture collections. Maison Martin Margiela, which has always been famous for its non-standard thinking, and extremely innovative approach towards any look from classic to modern, comes up with something that doesn’t look like any of the collections it presented previously, yet obviously sharing some common features with them, too, and that can probably be described as the ultra-unexpected and unique looks, the models had on the runway.
Starting from the very beginning of the Maison Martin Margiela Couture spring/summer 2014 collection, the curious, and even a bit scary masks that all the models had covering their faces caught our attention. However, this was just the beginning, as very shortly, the awesome garment solutions that were picked for accompanying them even overshadowed the presence of the masks. Talking about these details, we should start with the graphical images that were created both with the overall silhouettes, and with the design patterns. Thus in case of the first look, it were the squared top and the straight skirt, both having some interesting deign pattern prints, finished off with shiny yellow boots, while in case of the second, we saw some more elongated silhouettes, the hit of which are the graphical with geometric prints, matched with the black transparency plays ideally. These kinds of prints do expand later, reaching such interpretations as the ones with optical effects, emphasized more with the color palette made of bluish and yellow shades. Red is also here used for the next floor length and relaxed dress, having the typical strapless top part.
Surprisingly, the strict geometric mood turns into sweet floral environment, as we see the array of floral-adorned shapes invade the runway. The color palette used for the latter is as diverse as possible at the same time not losing the principle of being tastefully matched with each other.
But this is not the end either, as further we also see a catchy array of artwork as prints, some mosaic collages made of beads, super interesting cuts and deconstructions, as well as some oversized shapes for the outerwear, and furry details for the conclusion. Thus, in case you want the most different and extraordinary suggestions for the coming spring, the Maison Martin Margiela Couture spring/summer 2014 collection might prove to be a good inspiration, and a source, why not.
