The Margiela fella is not one to fall as a fashion victim, instead, he embraces the new and unexpected. For S/S 12 Footwear the brand did not let us down, offering their avante-garde point of views of the most classic items. A burnished leather boot looks plain to the untrained eye, but the subtlety of the folded Velcro strap is fascinating. A streamlined oxford silhouette is brought to life with a hand-painted texture and raw edges. A summer canvas flat is unbelievably cool with simple straps and counter. Needless to say, I’m an admitted fan of the new collection, and am crossing my fingers in the hopes I can find some items in my size. – Jenn Tello
