Brokeback Mount Fuji: MM6 Spring 2015

For spring, MM6 — a second line of Maison Martin Margiela — took a cross-cultural journey to Brokeback Mount Fuji, if you will. The collection freely sampled elements of the Wild West — fringed suede chaps, denim, bandanna prints — and added a Japanese element, like waists cinched with obi belts. Bindings were a running theme, with cutaway jackets tied with girly ribbons that hinted at straitjacket construction and one look that appeared to be encased in a plastic garment bag. Any hint of darkness, however, was tempered by a mint-toothpaste palette of green, blue and white.
