I know, I know...The Maison Martin Margiela AW11/12 collection dropped many months ago, but I think it definitely deserves a blog post!

Margiela, undoubtedly one of the greatest couture avant-gardists to have ever lived, is well known for his extravagantly OTT creations...despite having previously designed for the likes of  Herm├Ęs and Gaultier. His signature combination of de-constructed garments, unconventional materials and exaggerated proportions has earned him notoriety in the fashion world, as well as a league of celebrity fans.

The 'Artisanal' AW11/12 collection has got to be my favourite show to date...the colour, cut, shape and texture of every piece is a sumptuous feast for the eyes...Unconventional down to every last stitch: A COMPLETE triumph!

Using plastic, Liberty print fabric, leather, feathers, ribbon and flowers, Margiela created stunning silhouettes unlike anything else on the runway that season...This is avant-garde couture at its finest!

Below are my favourite pieces from the collection...You can also see Margiela's previous work, for both men and women over at his official site
