Martin Margiela tries to bring back shoulder pads. In a big way.

Giant_shoulderpads

Starting to think about Autumn/Winter outerwear? Yes, us too. Starting to wonder just how you could contrive to walk around looking like a giant black box this winter? Us… actually, not so much, really. And while we can see how Batman, or those who like to emulate him, might be able to totally rock this Martin Margiela leather jacket, the back view makes us laugh too hard to want to consider the idea of mere mortals wearing it. Although, that said, imagine a whole street filled with people shaped like boxes!

In all seriousness, we’d probably have loved this if the coathanger hadn’t been left in it. The oversized coat hanger. If you like it even with the coat hanger, why you better hasten to Yoox.com. where it’ll cost you £1115.

    It looks like that poor model is wearing a leather garment bag. NO thanks.

    hah…if you’ve ever seen The Triplets of Belleville…this reminds me of the Mafia dudes…they looked like big blocks with a head…It was a hilarious portrayal, so I can see these as nothing but a joke 😀

    Very fashionable…if you’re a corpse. Does it look like the model is wearing the top half of a body bag to anyone else?

    Is it horribly nerdy that the first thing I thought was: “She looks like an escapee from a Star Trek convention, probably cosplaying a Romulan dominatrix!”
    I’m certain it is. But oh my god.

    I wasn’t thinking so much a body bag as a garment bag.
