The couture collection of Maison Martin Margiela continued in last season’s footsteps with decorative masks covering the faces of the models for the (quite paradoxical) purpose of incognito. You could call it conceptual couture, or artisinal (as they have named the line since not being an official haute couture member), with a much more unconvential expression if compairing to a traditional haute couture dress instead seen on the red carpet.
If differing aesthetically, the craft is nevertheless a common factor. Although Valentino may be bragging about the 500 hours of handwork spent on such a red carpet dress, it took 70 hours to craft the candy fur in the above picture. Masks off to the one who puts on that piece, or any piece from MMM Artisinal really, for the red carpet.
