Maison Martin Margiela SS2012

Margiela SS12 carpet boots

From WWD, "It was back to DIY (yessssss!!) at the house Martin built. Want to toughen up your evening column? Simply attach a leather skirt front with Velcro (or, in the house parlance, “scratch sticky bands.”) If the occasion is a bit snazzier, a panel of shantung might do the trick. The high-minded Belgian label took on a womanly silhouette as its canvas this season, decorating a bustier gown with industrial zips in lieu of boning, and tossing rectangles of silk on to slinky jersey dresses. To a loping reggae beat, models traversed a hodgepodge of oriental rugs, some of which suddenly appeared as quirky wrap skirts and dresses."

The idea of covering my platform heeled shoes with carpet is tempting. Or making it to a cape or maxi skirt.. The velcro attachements multiply your outfit  and styling possibilities.

Maison Martin Margiela is the name and inspiration that got me into DIY a lifetime ago. I love how they still do it. Every season.
