I used to be in love with Martin Margiela. Everything about the brand was intriguing. The clothes were interesting, conceptual, often irreverent. Not always beautiful but then again, one of the most interesting things about Margiela's clothes is that they challenge your perception of pretty. They can border on kitschy and are heavy on the concept.
Within the past few years, the elusive designer has left his eponymous label and while his design team are very competent and the label is known for its collective nature. Many fans of the brand have noticed the spark of brilliance missing from many of the clothes. With that being said. While the clothes might not feel as exciting as they used to, the accessories on the other hand still make me tingle. I just wish my bank account could handle my love for these accessories
