Maison Martin Margiela Spring / Summer 2011

Maison Martin Margiela’s SS11 collection recently shown in Paris in September, was all about most minimal and elegantly extreme designs.

It began with a simple blue shirt worn as a dress, with the sleeves constructed in only two dimensions, like a square.

The fronts continued to get flatter until trousers were reduced to rectangles in the front and leggings in the back.

It became apparent that these perfect right angles were referencing all the Margiela classics, from the tuxedo and biker jacket to the trench coat and draped jersey dress. Colors were subtle: black, gray, white, pale blue and nude in the form of a bodysuit that echoed a bra tan.

We always appreciate the Margiela perspective!

MMM Menswear will be stocked at 4 from SS2011.
