NO TRICKS NECESSARY
Paris: The visual trickery and subversive hallmarks of the Maison Martin Margiela label can sometimes prove puzzling, but for F/W 13 these cryptic elements were kept to a minimum, leaving room for simple and directional tailoring. Still, innovation ruled, finding one-pieces made to look like suiting, patchworked cardigans with a recycled flair and a handful of fur and leather ponchos. The classics included flannel trousers cut both slim and flowingly wide, refined dress coats, fine gauge turtlenecks and cozy toggle jackets, with a healthy dose of motorcycle leathers and fisherman knits to counter the presentation’s more office-appropriate pieces.—Nina Stotler
