    I love the sunglasses folded over the crazy red square dress. It’s so casual, as if she’s just wearing it out to the shops.

    I wonder what these look like from the back. The spectators in the first picture seem to be very amused…

    I’m surprised the models aren’t giggling – maybe that’s why they have their hair over their faces, so it’s not as easy to spot if they are!

    I wonder how those were put together.. especially the coat!
    Would like to see the backs as well.
    Don’t think they intend to actually SELL them, don’t they?

    definitely show pieces only. amazing, crazy and avant garde… i don’t want to see anyone wearing any of those dresses in public… they will scare the hell out of me.

    I think the models are trying to hide behind their hair.

    I know it’s supposed to be edgy (hee hee, get it?), But i just don’t understand what they’re trying to do here.

    i would love to see these catch on to watch people wearing them attempt to do normal everyday tasks like get out of vehicles or enter teeny public washroom stalls and to watch other people react to them as they strut by…also it would possibly start a revival for huey lewis and the news and that hip to be square song from the 80s lol

    I do not understand why ANYONE would waste their time, energy, and money on creating these, er… things.

    If they’re trying to make some sort of statement, they could have done it with one garment. But this is like a child who just discovered a new swear word…

    Well, haven’t you heard? It’s hip to be square. And, er, literal. And to look like Picasso paintings.

    I think it represents flat art, like a painting.

    I was mildly distracted from the “cardboard” dress by the big bandaid on the foot of the model in the first photo.

    I think Mason Martin Margiela is a plagiarist! Go search for “Erwin Wurm for Hermes, 2008” to see what I mean!!
    Compair Erwin Wurm sculptures for 2008 Hermes, with this Margiela collection and judge for yourselves!

    I think its beautiful. It is like a bodyshield. Like hiding away inside a garment. Like a frightened little human in armour. I love it. Its like poetry on the catwalk.
