Materials, Structures and Processes
Martin Margiela, spring/summer 1996. This collection consisted of photographs of garments – a sequinned evening dress, a man’s overcoat, tweed skirts, print dresses, heavy woollen sweaters – overprinted in grey and sepia tones, evoking old photographs, onto white, fluid fabrics in viscose and cotton, then made into simple shapes. Knitted fabric again proves to particularly successful as a print. The anonymity of the veiled face adds to contradictory visual impact.
