Maison Martin Margiela Men's RTW Fall 2009 Collection Is Criminal

The latest men's collection from MMM is criminal. Or at least the collection appears that way. Clever fashion designer Martin Margiela shows off his 2009 Men's Ready To Wear Fall Collection as a police line up.

Clad in his apparel, models don booking placards as they stand against a wall with the horizontal measuring markers. Looking forlorn, guilty, scared and in some cases, bored, the clothes still hold their own. The new collection consists of linear silhouettes and reinterpretations of classic looks.

There were plenty of conceptual design devices (very MMM), including a rain jacket that appears to be 'stained' with water drops on the shoulders, and an “after-party” shirt with a faux red wine stain. With Diesel owning the company, jeans were a strong element in the line. And as is typical, Margiela never seems to run out of unique ways to showcase his work. Just take a look.

special thanks to WWD for the photos

Hey--- the content of your blog is great, but it takes FOREVER to load. After waiting 2 minutes for it, I finally clicked "stop". I have a very fast connection, too! You might be losing readers this way. You might consider having fewer pictures, fewer posts per page, or using Photoshop or another application to take the size of your photos down. Hope you find this info helpful! Yours, a fan.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it's the fact that I have many photos (that people can enlarge) that appeals to many of my readers. Sometimes it's actually the flash ads in the side bar and widgets that slow the download process.
Once the bog is cached it actually downloads pretty darn quickly (30 seconds or less on my own computer).

Actually, I just checked... make that 5 seconds or less to download once it's cached. Guess you'll simply have to bookmark it and visit more often. LOL.

I agree with Anonymous. Great content, really slow load times (also crashed my browser-FF 2.0). You may want to check to make sure your widgets aren't causing conflicts. Also, you may want to hire a professional to address your XHTML issues: n-ma

Again, great content, just trying to help.
