Paris Fashion Week A/W 2008-9: Maison Martin Margiela

Martin Margiela's show yesterday evening followed on from his last collection with draping jersey and built-up shoulders but the Americana t-shirts and distressed denim were gone a replaced by cobwebby knits, leopard print and brocade and fur. He seemed to be taking clich├ęs of sexy dressing and turning them on their head in his own inimitable way.

I have to admit the one-legged brocade trousers mystified me but there are some great pieces lurking in there. I love the zipped mini, especially with the thigh high rubber boots and even though they're pretty extreme I'm sure we'll be seeing watered down version's of Margiela's raised shoulders soon.
