I'm gonna match-stick my eyes open

So I can feel myself losing interest in Maison Martin Margiela, especially since I've been so busy recently I haven't really done anything. So I'm going to keep myself inspired by discovering new things to do with the MMM brand.

Today, its his 'Artisanal Collection.' It's Haute Couture, all the pieces are hand sewn and hand-created. They are 'remodelled' garments, random objects which are completely transformed and 'reshuffled' into breath-taking garments. I'm amazed by his awareness of the body when creating these; it's all about where certain things lie on the body. And the pure innovation of his ideas is astounding.

My favourite are a cross between the disco ball top and the football trainers top; they look like stunning garments in their own right but you can still see what they originated from. Also included are a hair comb dress, latex hair mask bolero and a record dress.
