Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2014: A Mixed Bag of Circus Inspiration

Inspired by the circus, this season's Maison Martin Margiela lineup balanced the fashion-forward with the wearable fairly well.

The inspiration came through strongest in the paneled black and red pants, ringleader jackets, harlequin-inspired geometric accents, fringe-accented tops, long and somewhat baggy coats and sheer fabric overlays.

The collection was at its strongest when looks were kept clean-lined, as was the case with trousers with contrast waistbands, sequin tops and outerwear. When textures were mixed, the results veered too much towards costume. Ditto for the sliced sleeve tops that closed out the collection.
