The Finish Makes the Man–Maison Martin Margiela looks to texture and finish to revamp their lean silhouettes for the spring/summer 2014 season. Working with a color palette that brings to mind oil and dust, a masculine edge is achieved with room to accomplish a variety of pieces. In one instance, a gradient is used for a slender pair of coated jeans. At other times, an apron detail adds another dimension, engaging in longer proportions. Combined with the Parisian fashion house’s penchant for a great tailored suit, the outing is a solid success.
