Spring 2015 Couture - Maison Martin Margiela and John Galliano

This week saw the return of John Galliano with his Spring 2015 Couture debut collection for Maison Martin Margiela.

I was very excited when I read about it and went immediately to look at the pictures. To be honest I am not sure what I expected. What I got, or saw, was a mixed bag of Margiela goodies.

The first part was out there. I had a hard time relating to a lot of it, personally, which mostly stems from this point of view shaped by my everyday life. Or in other words, I lack the occasions, not the will. In comparison, the second part was then quite conservative, minimalistic with a more every day friendly mass appeal. The contrast was quite stark. And the final piece?

Let's play a game called "Style this!". Take the, in your opinion, most absurd frock & look from this show and tell me how you'd style it to be more you.

Questa settimana ha visto il ritorno di John Galliano con la sua collezione Couture Primavera 2015 per Maison Martin Margiela.

Sono stata molto curiosa quando l'ho letto e sono immediatamente andata a vedere le immagini. Quello che ho visto è un sacchetto di caramelle Margiela miste.

La prima parte era la fuori. Ho fatto fatica relazionarmi con questi vestiti, personalmente, il che deriva anche dal fatto che il mio punto di vista è influenzato dalla mia vita quotidiana, il che a sua volta vuol dire che mi mancano le occasioni per portare vestiti così. La seconda parte invece era molto più conservatrice, minimalistico. L'ultimo look poi?

Facciamo un gioco chiamato "Style this!". Prendete il look, secondo la vostra opinione, più "assurdo" e ditemi come lo mettereste per essere più voi stesse.

Diese Woche sah die Rueckkehr John Gallianos mit seiner Spring 2015 Couture Debut Kollektion fuer Maison Martin Margiela.

Ich war gleich sehr neugierig als ich es gelesen habe und bin sofort hin um mir die Bilder anzuschauen. Keine Ahnung was ich mir erwartete, aber was ich erhielt war eine seltsame Margiela Mischung.

Der erste Teil der Show war irgendwo da draussen. Ich tat mich schwer damit, was zugegebenerweise auch daran liegt, dass mein Ausgangspunkt davon beeinflusst ist, wie ich lebe. Oder anders gesagt, mir mangelt es an Gelegenheiten so etwas anzuziehen. Der zweite Teil war dann eher konservativer, sehr viel alltagstauglicher und massenfreundlich. Und der letzte Look?

Lasst uns mal "Style this!" spielen. Sucht Euch das Teil aus, dass Eurer Meinung nach am merkwuerdigsten ist und erzaehlt mir, wie Ihr es stylen wuerdet damit es dann doch zu Euch passt.

P.S. My favorites are the long black coat with oversized revers and embellishments and the simple red neckholder dress, as well as the bi-colored tights.

P.P.S. Pet Peeve Alarm: I dislike hair styled "ugly & unwashed" in runway shows.
