Maison Martin Margiela SS09

This was one of the most pleasantly disturbing collections I've seen walk down the runway this season. It was something like part serial killer mixed with a bit of cousin IT as a Broadway dancer...or something like that. There were so many strange yet awesome inspirations in Margiela's 20th anniversary collection—it was the perfect way to end two decades of brilliance. Underneath the very dramatic styling and presentation of the show, the clothes were very much a modern reworking of his greatest hits paired with some innovative surprises. Margiela is here to stay (those rumors of him retiring were confirmed as total BS) and the roar of approval at the end of the show was certainly deserved.
