The Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2011 Collection Flattens Out the Runway

The Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2011 collection provides a two-dimensional feel with its box-cut pieces.

The boards on the featured garments were upholstered in androgynous looks of boyfriend blazers and menswear pants. Looks like the designer is trying to tell us that straight lines and strong shoulders are the in-look for the coming seasons. Check out the featured gallery to see these boxy models catwalk down the runway.

Implications - After viewing these pictures, I found myself imagining what these same clothes would look like if the models down the runway were men. Personally, I love the concept of re-appropriating men's clothing for women. This is an example of what happens when it's done right.
