MM6 Maison Martin Margiela SS2015 Womens Collection varying cultures and generations are innocently assembled and naturally without stylistic reasoning or purpose. Rules are broken. New silhouettes are created from unexpected sources, wardrobe staples, and humble materials. Subtle nods to Maison.
Americana pop clashes with traditional Japanese culture, underwear becomes evening wears, household objects are transformed into clothing. Garments play with volume and materials. The collection is accessible, handcrafted and playful.
The allure is spontaneous and nonchalant, naively put together a patchwork of inspirations customized and appropriated. Items fluctuate, become adjustable, changeable. Straps and obi belts are omnipresent, playfully adapted to alter the garments main function. proportions are inversed, shrunken, elongated. Shirts appear too long, jacket too small. Old Japanese sandals merged with club kids rave shoes create monochrome platforms with transparent bands.
