Maison Martin Margiela SS 13// Shirt Couture

A Shirtgiela is a shirt with the Margiela spirit. bow. lol. i hope my fondness with coining terms  wouldn't qualify as a #cybercrime. We know what a shirt is! It has 4 holes. It is basic. It's for the mundane! But Margiela's strongest looks (for me) were the restrained dramatization of a basic clothing. Here, you'll see an exaggerated  "balakang" or hip on a shirt dress as if disrupting the conventional framework and purity of the grey shirt. Then there's the  half shirt half sheer (reminiscent of our Tent shirt from Paradigm Shift 2 seasons ago). I love the blank canvases for this season. The carpeted prints and the discreet  schizophrenic sensbilities of the team wowed many but their signature unadulterated and cerebral minimalism can be 10x  surprising as well.

The shoes were brilliant! Not that novelty but the parallelism of a slim heel versus the sleek body is a fresh move from him. We are aware howMargiela's shoes before were intended to create confusion and wham as if it's a global issue.






This certain criss cross bandeau sensibility was also seen at Balenciaga's S/S 13..
