The Maison Martin Margiela Resort 2013 collection is full of pristine tailored looks inspired by vintage sources. Although the consumer-friendly series does not contain Margiela's usual futuristic wears, it is polished to perfection.
Although the lookbook is heavy on suits, the silhouettes are cutting-edge and tailored to highlight feminine shoulders and delicate necklines. The fish scale-like blazer is sure to be a hit with statement-setting stylistas -- I know I'd kill for one myself. The boxy folds and menswear-esque ensembles exude an effortless sophistication that is certainly enviable.
While many designers research age-old finds for inspiration, most leave out the fact the design was inspired by a former piece. Margiela on the other hand, does not keep secrets from its clients -- replica garments were some of the main contenders in the Martin Margiela Resort 2013 collection.
