Maison Martin Margiela goes urban, chic and minimalistic this fall for the stunning MM6 Maison Martin Margiela fall/winter 2014-2015 collection, unveiled at New York Fashion Week Tuesday night in a spectacular presentation thanks to the live performance of Canadian singer Sean Nicholas Savage. It’s definitely one of the most wearable and versatile lines unveiled at NYFW fall 2014 so far, yet it does contain something special, unique and experimental that carries the philosophy of this fashion house.
The show at MM6 Maison Martin Margiela started with simple all-white, all-black or black and white looks, which featured sharp straight lines and simplistic styles that seemed quite ordinary at first sight. When you look closer, you see the magic of these pieces: they were actually made to feel and look like paper, which explains the idea of the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela fall/winter 2014-2015 collection well. Seemed like packaging inspired the designer to come up with these creative ULINE shipping envelopes resembling bags, tops that looked like carrying straps of transparent wrapping tape and the bubble wrap tops worn with bandeaus.
Next, the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela fall/winter 2014-2015 collection brought some crazy orange colors, mainly used for the warm knitted sweaters and the knitted dresses, also olive green tones and navy blues. Shiny metallic fabrics represent the next noteworthy aspect of the collection, being used for designing tailored shorts in bright orange, pants and biker jackets in the same hue.
The simplicity of the outfits was preserved also when it came to styling them. Thus black wellies, biker ankle booties, the extra-original bags and the sporty gloves were the main accompanying details of the looks. Beauty wise, the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela fall/winter 2014-2015 collection show brought some trending vibes too, like the bleached eyebrows that are slowly taking over the bushy ones, the minimalistic makeup looks and the effortlessly sleek hair.
Overall, how surprising it came to our expectations, the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela fall/winter 2014-2015 collection is ultra-wearable and comfortable for the cold season to come! Whether the brand managed to satisfy the style needs of Lady Gaga or not is still to be discovered, as we see her fall 2014 choices of garments!
