Fashion Police traumatized by Maison Martin Margiela S/S 09 collection at Paris Fashion Week

Martin_margiela

She’s facing forward, people. You see what they did there? It’s like Samara from The Ring, all grown up and newly dyed blonde. Looks like it’s going to be nightmares for us again tonight, then…


Fashion_crime_catwalk We’d wear stockings over our faces too if we were forced to wear a jacket made out of our own hair. Clothes that make you look like you grew long hair all over your body… Hmmm, let us think about that one. Er, ok, NO. But thanks…Martin_margiela09 Under her, er, dress, this model is laughing her ass off at the thought that some people might actually buy this.Parisfashionweek This one, meanwhile, is just grateful she didn’t have to wear the HAIR SUIT.Mm_paris_fashion_week This’ll be a bugger to get off when you need to go to the bathroom, no?The_ring Aww, crap, it’s the Samara Sisters again! Now come on folks, admit it: who played the tape?

    I’m surprised these poor models could move without walking into something…

    Uh. I get that runway fashion is “art,” or whatever, and they don’t actually expect anyone to wear it. But, um, isn’t the point to make art on the runway, and then make a wearable version to actually sell? Because I’m not seeing how these are possibly going to be translated into wearable clothing. Especially the leather thing, for spring/summer? Come on, guys. This is ridiculous.

    I’m actually quite disturbed by the two runway posts; they’re very post apocolyptic. Fashion and costume have notoriously been a big ol’ neon sign saying something is off and amiss here; art, everyday dress, or what, is this meant to be very political and very telling of and for the time?

    Well.. there’s camel toe and then there’s CAMEL TOE. That’s all I can say about this post.

    I think the models are lucky that they had to cover their faces. If I was them, I would reeaallyy not want to be recognised…

    oh my god
    please are you all serious?
    this is supposed to question what fashion really is, and kind of joke about it. The hair is making fun of bangs and the shiny diamond thing is supposed to be making fun of jewelery and the big circle jacket and weird shirt dress thing is re introducing ideas from his 1988 collection since this is the 20th anniversary(spell check?) of Maison Martin Margiela

    wow. this is utterly REDICULOUS. i guess margiela didnt watch project runway, the season when that one dude used fake hair DISASTROUSLY! however, even the project runway guy (i cant remember his name) did a better job in executing fake hair as a fashion medium. i understand that runway fashion is more ‘art’, but truly, this is just stupid.

    Although by the most common of standards, all these looks are certainly unwearable as everyday street attire, houses like Margiela propose an alternative idea of presentation for their pret-a-porter lines. None of these looks are meant to be interpreted as reality. I’m not suggesting that anyone should or shouldn’t like them because of their wearability, just that it should be remembered that everything will be reconstructed and made more “sensible” for retail purposes. Maybe Mr. Margiela doesn’t want you to stop laughing, J. At least he’s made you think and gotten an opinion out of you. THIS IS FASHION, BABY!
