Maison Sans Martin Margiela

The MMM website may have a disclaimer that it is not under construction.

Web Warning at www.maisonmartinmargiela.com

It just looks that way.

That disclaimer should have alerted us of a much more ominous reality.

Monsieur Margiela is no longer at the Maison that bears his name. And apparently, he hasn’t been home for some time.

Gone, like a cloud, it seems, after his Fall Winter 09 collection.

They should change that site disclaimer: This brand is under renovation.

The Spring Summer 2010 collection didn’t seem to have his signature, if you ask me.

It won’t be the same without the Master. Rumoured replacements include Raf Simons, who is great but he is not MM or Jil Sander, for that matter. And Haider Ackerman, he is doing his own thing well – I’d like to see where he goes with it, without someone else’s name hanging over his creativity.

There is only Margiela.

Who will we worship now, Martin?
