Maison Martin Margiela Runway Fall 2012

There was an ease to Maison Martin Margiela for Fall 2012, and even though the house promoted some interesting ideas — maxi skirt sliced halfway off, anyone? — the majority of the collection was filled with softly tailored separates and outerwear that had a clean, classic timelessness to it. But first, those interesting ideas: turtlenecks that covered models' faces, and dresses and skirts that looked like someone took scissors to a kimono and then stitched it all back together. It still managed to feel clean and precise, perhaps another reference to Japan.

  • Trends: menswear, kimono-inspired dressing, peplum, deconstruction, and monochromatic dressing.
  • Colors: black, white, red, camel, and brown.
  • Key Piece: The menswear-inspired overcoats.
  • Who Would Wear It: This is for the edgy girl who grows up and wants to look a bit more tailored, but not by mainstream standards — Kristen Stewart of the future.
