The Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2012 couture collection is brimming in bejeweled masks and vintage-infused duds. Despite the fact the artisanal 15-piece collection is rather small compared to the rest of the couture designers, Margiela always knows how to make its works statement-setting.
Recently debuted Dior designer Raf Simons was reported present in the front row, watching the collection come down the runway. The models were hidden behind crystal-encrusted masks, a trademark feature for the Margiela house. The mysterious fashion house is known for its ability to infuse vintage pieces into its ensembles. Crystal doorknobs were used as fasteners on the sleeveless white jacket that began the show. Even an old baseball glove was converted into a hat and vest -- talk about thinking outside the box.
If you enjoy the offbeat stylings of this incognito marque, the Maison Martin Margiela Fall 2012 couture collection is sure to capture your hearts.
