Men’s designer clothing has gone a long way in the past years. To say that men have become more experimental and adventurous when it comes to their choice of clothing is very much an understatement. With the many designers who have entered the fashion scene some of them have created a niche market and have started to focus solely on creating edgy and fashion forward pieces for men. Perhaps one of the most talked about in the men’s fashion world today is the Maison Martin Margiela collection. Martin Margiela is a Belgian fashion designer who is known for his works for some of the biggest fashion houses in the world such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Hermes. It was in the 1990s when avante garde Japanese designers came up with very unique designs under the label called Comme des Garcons. It was Martin Margiela who continued on with the work and with his design genius he turned the fashion world upside down.
Embracing the concept of deconstruction, he created pieces that were so out of this world and so fashion-forward that many stylish people from celebrities to socialites would scramble to get their hands on any of his pieces as soon as they arrived in stores. For the Maison Martin Margiela collection came up with Replica garments which were they key items for one of his latest lines aptly called Resort. One of his most popular pieces is a shawl-collared jacket that is embroidered with sequins. This was inspired by a Prince of Wales checkered blazer from the 1970s. What makes Margiela’s designs so unique is that he takes inspiration from classic pieces then infuses some of its elements into trendier designs. Margiela is also famous for his collaboration with fashion powerhouse H&M. His collections here have become some of the most sought-after pieces when it comes to men’s designer clothing. The use of new shapes and materials that are so innovative, raw and edgy gives menswear a radical point of view in the art of clothes.
There are pieces that inject concepts such as structured flou, silk georgette tunic in lavender shades, cropped pants, and pleated skirts that are added on to the front panel of a jumpsuit. Men would also love to get their hands on the shearling coat and the warm camel colored wool coat perfect for those chilly days. Margiela is indeed a force to be reckoned with when it comes to men’s designer clothing and there are more surprises that one should expect from this genius of a designer.
