Artisanal by Maison Martin Margiela

 The Paris Couture shows have just started and the Maison Martin Margiela team presented one of its best collections so far.

The Artisanal concept is based on old garments and objects gathered  from all over the world, given a second chance to become something new, unique and fascinating. All pieces are handsewn and their manufacturing may take up to 170 hours of work.
 The Spring/Summer 2011 collection is inspired by flowers in prints,colours and shapes.

 The collection consists of geometrical dresses, boleros combined with simple bodies and overalls.

 The variety of materials used is huge: iridiscent leather, cotton poplin, Liberty fabrics, taffeta,polyester,crepe, silk and lycra adorned with sequins made of plastic bags, pearls and coq feathers.The colour combinations are also impressive: blue, fuschia, orange and candy pastels.
