Two inspirational quotes to start the post. 1) Never say never. (I vowed just two days ago not to make any more posts about pre-fall collections) 2) It ain’t over until MMM says it’s over. Yes I know even couture shows are about to end and we are all bored with pre-fall stuff but this is too good to not share. Besides, I would wait any kind of wearable Margiela with arms wide open and even though I get some serious Victor & Rolf and Watanabe (maybe even 90’s Gaultier) vibe (let’s not kid ourselves, it was never the same after mysterious Mr Margiela left but still I see it as a design shrine) I still want to embrace every single look. Anyone looking for gift ideas – my birthday is in, like, 4 months so you have to schedule beforehand – anything from this collection would do. Anything. But I prefer the sweaters. And the boots. Maybe the dresses too. Oh no I want the pants.
All of you out there who are wearing this Margiela for H&M grey felt dress for anything other than keeping warm, you are so in wrong. It is godsent, like an extremely fluffy night-robe only it has the MMM fanciness that gives you the right to claim you’re fashionable. Though it’s so wooly that it leaves hairballs everywhere – which actually supports my pijama thesis. And I swear I would wear it with flats had I been a little taller – it sucks that we have to wear heels all the time.
