Monthly Margiela: The Hair Shirt

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that not a month goes by without us having to take the folks at Maison Martin Margiela to task for some hideous Crime of Fashion or other. Margiela himself doesn’t design for the brand any more, but his influence lives on, and we view him as a kind of Evil Overlord of the fashion world: kind of like the Joker, only with weirder outfits.

Anyway, so great is MMM’c occupancy of our cells that we decided to give the brand a monthly slot here. And what do they have in store for us this month, we hear you ask? Oh, just this:

ugly fur t-shirtWe feel like we could do better ourselves, and we can barely even sew on a button, so that’s saying something.

How much do you think something like this is worth, though, that’s the question? Or ONE of the questions, at least. Why a mere £365, that’s all! Click here to buy it…
