Maison Martin Margiela makes another version of the skirt-trouser

Return of the Skouser

Remember ‘Skousers’? They’re part trouser, part skirt, and no one – no one – does them quite like Martin Margiela. Thank Gaga for that, eh?

The skousers you see above are special skousers, because rather than sticking to the more usual “mullet” design, with the skirt in the back and the trousers at the front, Margiela has cunningly designed these with the “trouser” on one leg and the “skirt” on the other. We say “cunningly”: you may well have a different word to describe this. Feel free to suggest a few in the comments section.

If you want to be part of the new trouser sensation that’s, er, probably NOT sweeping the nation, meanwhile, head over to, where you can buy these for £215.

    Weird – they’re called casual trousers on the web site, and I can’t help feeling that that’s not an accurate description…

    Oh dear. It looks like they used a terrible seamstress and tried to sell the clothes anyway.

      And I like these. :p They look like spiky concepty trousers that were slit open and just mucked around with. The kind of thing I would love to DIY but lack the skill to.
