>> Trick-the-eye cuts — for example, capes with sewn-down sleeves that looked like classic overcoats, and skirts with split-fronts that made them look like tuxedo trousers — dominated Maison Martin Margiela's Fall 2012 outing. Silhouettes were generous, the palette was subdued, and the house's mannish tailoring was in full display. "The shapes and construction of each piece of clothing derives from a specific gesture: attitudes such as 'over the shoulder,' 'hands in pockets,' and 'stand-up collar' inspire new, oversize volumes," the show notes explained.
