Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal
i don't think anyone ever questions whether or not ann demeulemeester will deliver, come each new season, but at the end of each you're always left wondering how it could get any better. just when you think how will she top the leather ribcage belt contraption and THOSE lace up boots? she comes with these metal strands and insane strappy footwear. these boots are the ultimate for spring.
COMME DES GARCONS
this dress and jacket would drastically improve the quality of my life.
and what even needs to be said about these...
love this take on the classic white shirt and tailored suit.
Parisian chic yes. other shows may have more whoa and pizazz but Isabel Marant always shows the most everyday wearable chic clothes. this jacket is perfection.
after last fall's crazy metal and chainmail detailed jackets i looked forward to seeing what new details there would be for spring. surprisingly these shoes caught my eye more than the clothes. the detail on the jacket though is so exquisite.
this is one of the first things that made me fall in love with margiela years ago and one of the first things that really made me feel like design didn't have to be about mainstream and the norm. i had been doing stuff like this since i was in grade school and i suppose when i saw this it really hit home and set me on a career path of sorts. inspiration comes from a variety of sources and even when you feel like such an outsider, there is always someone out there like you.
on a completely random side note, i just had deja vu.
happy birthday to me! and dana carvey!
