Maison Martin Margiela courts disparate elements for Spring/Summer 2015, alchemizing prairie dresses, aprons, sarongs and toppers into the kind of weirdly wonderful looks the brand is best known for. Like a welder constructing a haphazard mixed-material sculpture, MMM works with upcycled materials and curious elements to fuse together the surreal and the stylish. The opening look, a sliced open dress outfitted with ruffled yoke and worn over navy trousers, speaks of later oddities to come. An undercurrent of sensuality is one of MMM’s most surprising elements – interstitial nude fabrics kept flesh-toned provocation in place, while models walk the runway with soaking wet hair and glistening limbs. Contrasting prints were combined into crafty collage-work, while skirts were worn at asymmetrical, thigh-revealing angles or spliced together with trousers. Hybridization was a clear concern on MMM’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway, as elements were seemingly plucked from thin air and transformed into colorful, layered looks that oftentimes defied description.
