The Avant Premiere Collection Of Maison Martin Margiela Spring Summer 2012

There was a polished simplicity in the clothes that were hanging on the rails allocated by a logical sequence of a colour palette, 163 Rue Saint Maur in Paris, as part of the avant premiere collection of Maison Martin Margiela SS 2012.

In their muteness, the garments, recalled stories of ideas merging together before their own existence.
The concepts referred to the Autumn-Winter 2011-12 podium collection, when the inside was drawn to the outside in a series of manipulative ways.

This time for the avant-première collection, lines and shapes were not really miles away from the basic; their details remaining investigational.

Fabrics ranged from the basic: cotton, silk, wool, viscose, to deer, horse and kangaroo skin.
Materials often fused together onto the same garment, like on that male deer skin jacket that had lamb skin sleeves.

The idea of the fabric contrast developed on a separation between the front and the back, the upper and the lower parts, with emphasis on collars, hoods and sleeves.

Maison Martin Margiela’s Home and Menswear lines are exclusive to 4.
