>> There's been plenty of contention about Martin Margiela's current role at his Maison, and for the label's Fall 2009 couture Artisanal line, plenty of familiar tactics were used: faceless models, nude or black leotards, and handmade jackets out of blue pen caps and vests out of false eyelashes. But as WWD pointed out — "While Margiela played to his artsy tune, there was tamer fare — a leather motorcycle jacket decorated with chains à la Michael Jackson and a shaved vintage fur, which illustrated the house is migrating into more commercial territory" — citing the fact that the presentation was also used to show off the house's second semiprecious jewelry collection.
