Bouchra Jarrar's fahion show was more than chic and fashionable;
it had a touch of edginess that shall not be ignored.
Almost every looks were combos of pants and tops or vests.
In this case, it is not a a trace of the male style fashion trend, it is actually a designer's preference:
"I just think a woman looks most elegant in trousers".
The collection was very black & white but, in terms of design, it was really modern.
Jarrar definitely has a wide vision.
There are two ways of looking to the Margiela's collection.
The first one is the one ignorant people may use: they look at the collection and because it is so odd, they just decide to hate it; or because it is so odd, they just decide to love it.
Now, Martin is asking for more than love and hate; he is stating something.
This leads us to the second way of looking to this collection: first we look, then we find odd, we look better and finally we try to understand what is going on.
This collection may look at first like an explosion of untidiness and disorder, but it is actually really organized.
Margiela built this collection with materials that have already been used. For example, for one of the looks, it was used "a tulle and cotton coat cut from a 1950s prom dress sourced in New York which was hemmed with vintage fabric flowers sourced in LA, London, Paris and Brussels and worn over a sequined dress, also form the fifties, that was found in Phoenix" [Tim Blanks]
As Tim Blanks said for Style.com, "If fashion is alchemy of a kind, Maison Martin Margiela's Artisanal initiative is one of its most explicit expressions".
