>>  During couture week, Ms. Suzy Menkes described a collection:

Martin Margiela has taken his penchant for recycling upscale. Although his collection was named "artisanal" rather than "couture," it added up to one-off clothes - although not the kind you would find in a traditional Paris salon. The Belgian designer had used bead necklaces, weighted and measured to give them perfect balance as they veiled a corset. Sandals straps were remade into an openwork leather top; and butterfly-sleeve spangled blouses from the 1980s were reconstructed as party dresses.

Intrigued, I set myself to tracking down some pictures.  Well, eureka, I've found them -- the presentation is tres cool.  And while the flower top may be a bit gimmicky, the leather top is definitely worthy "artisanal" pieces.  **source: firstview
