Maison Martin Margiela Spring/Summer 2010

Maison Martin Margiela's spring/summer 2010 collection fueled the rumors whether Martin Margiela is still at the helm or not. I recently read an article in Textilwirtschaft (leading German fashion and textile business magazine) where it said that Martin Margiela is still creative director of MMM and that there's no intention to replace him anytime soon. But he'll carry less responsibility and spend less time in the company, handing over many tasks to his team. Especially to his right hand, who's been working with him for 20 years and has already carried a lot of responsibility as Director of Collections. But Martin will still be informed about everything that will be created and is involved in all strategic decisions concerning the design. Of course the Director of Collections' name was not announced.

Here are some looks from the spring/summer 2010 collection. Let me know what you think!
