Though the invitations to the Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2014 Collection were printed with a glossy white marker atop a white matte card, the show itself is not as transparent. The design team kicked off the show with a filmy négligée-inspired layer, wispy slips and a couple of lace shells worn like cages over dense tops and dresses.

Transparency quickly turns into mannish tailoring and menswear fabrics that Margiela tweaks with its signature quirk. Classic houndstooth, Prince of Wales check and Harris Tweed are thrown in the mix, emerging as coats with cropped fronts, trailing backs and jackets.

They're prominently structured with couture-like shoulders and unfinished seams, even featuring humorous notes like a 'Harris Tweed' label worn like a prized logo on the outside of clothing.
