Maison Martin Margiela and Opening Ceremony announce their collaboration with a MM6 Maison Martin Margiela’s unique capsule for next Fall/Winter.
Based upon a 3-in-1 concept, select styles throughout the collection will transform into separately wearable garments.
Inspired by the construction of a jacket with detachable lining, this core characteristic will broaden the collection from over 20 original styles into an assortment of additional silhouettes. For example, a black quilted leather jacket is constructed with a contrasted water resistant nylon lining in beige that is fastened by buttons. As this lining is unfastened from the leather jacket, a nylon jacket is unveiled.
Such playful and functional elements are consistent to the design concept behind the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela line and intrinsic to the collaboration with Opening Ceremony. “I have always been a fan of MM6 Maison Martin Margiela, and their subtle references to everyday clothing with the intellectual qualities the Maison offers,” says Humberto Leon, Creative Director for Opening Ceremony.
“With this collection, the idea of transformation and multiple purposes is very exciting and you see it throughout the line.”
In line with the collective spirit of the Maison, this Fall/Winter capsule of apparel and accessories will launch globally in September 2011 at Opening Ceremony retail locations and select Maison Martin Margiela partners globally.
