This Maison Martin Margiela Fashion Show Presents the New as Old

The Spring menswear Maison Martin Margiela fashion show put an emphasis on two central themes throughout the collection—time and memory. The garments looked as thought they'd gone out and had adventures of their own before a model even had a chance to break them in first. This included details like subtle rust marks on t-shirts, leather with imprints of keys and jackets that had been deconstructed with the seams becoming new focal points for the piece.

This exploration of vintage style as something new has been seen time and time again on the runway, but the detailing is what sets it apart. Although some garments were definitely more rough around the edges than others, overall, the collection looked sharp and edgy rather than a mess.
