Maison Martin Margiela and Opening Ceremony have announced their collaboration with a MM6 Maison Martin Margiela capsule collection for next fall/winter. The collaboration will include both women's apparel and accessories that represent the trend-setting and collaborative personality of Opening Ceremony together with the daily and younger contemporary approach to fashion design of MM6 Maison Martin Margiela. Based upon a 3-in-1 concept, select styles throughout the collection will transform into separately wearable garments. 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.
“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.”
The f/w capsule collection of over 20 styles will launch globally in September of 2011 at Opening Ceremony retail locations and select Maison Margiela partners worldwide.
