Maison Martin Margiela Spring Summer 2011 Mens Accessories
Mr Margiela may be absent from the creative reins of his namesake brand, his spirits still lives on in Maison Martin Margiela's collections. For Spring Summer 2011, I am duly surprised by the amount of desirable pieces I covet from the mens collections, definitely heaps of improvement from the past 2 seasons.
The use of mundane objects as inspirations have always been embedded in the brand's DNA. Often imbued with a twist, the designs always surprises with ingenuity and understated aesthetics. For this season, I love those gold leaf coated boots which appeared raw but sends out an individualistic glamour unseen anywhere else. Leather bags made from tan leather that is ridden with scratches tells a different story about charisma and appeal for the owner. Love that holdall!
As for mens jewellery, work tools have been reworked to become understated and yet interesting mens rings, bracelets and necklaces. Unexpected mix of materials adds to the appeal. I want those leather and brass nugget bracelets with hammered effects, or even the unusual belts with atypical shaped buckles. All done with a vintage finesse!
Bravo on this new Spring Summer 2011 collection! This is inspiring-fashion:-P
