Maison Martin Margiela Backstage Girls Paris

MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA: BACKSTAGE GIRLS, PARIS FASHION WEEK A/W 14

Appearances can be deceiving. At least initially in the case of Ms. Maison Martin Margiela (quite a mouthful of a name, we know). Rather sedate looking at first- we’d almost go as far as librarian. But see how she stiffly carries her purse in the nook of her arm. See also how she allows the strap of her dress to fall carelessly off one shoulder. She’s strict, but she teases. Underneath all that tweed, there’s bound to be something a little bit Madame Whiplash going on. Alas, no photographers before first looks.
