Maison Martin Margiela Wants You To Get Tattoos
And host a crafternoon.
Ahh Maison Martin Margiela, with your breathtaking Couture SS14 show. The collection was not only a showcase of craftsmanship and inventiveness but it was something of a love letter to vintage. Old-world fabrics were sourced from estates and included Frank Lloyd Wright-designed textiles from the 50s and replicated motifs like Paul Gauguin's 'La femme du roi.' Textiles connoisseur Iris Apfel would have had a field day. But the stand-out statements were obvs those Margiela masks (which we can no longer dissociate from Kanye West) and the embroidered tattoos.
