Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Spring 2013

If some of the pieces in Maison Martin Margiela's Spring 2013 Couture collection look like they were made from candy wrappers, that's because they were. The house tweeted that the last three looks from Wednesday's show "were inspired by artist Félix González-Torres's 'Candy Floors.'" To mimic the installation of thousands of pieces of candy covering the floors at New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Margiela atelier spent a reported 70 hours embroidering metallic wrappers onto silk.
