Colour of Couture Photo Challenge #1

Inspired by the Maison Martin Margiela - Haute Couture spring 2014 "Artisanal" collection. This inventive collection literally looked like a "collection" of scraps of different luxurious textiles, jewels, and tapestries all pieced together in Margiela's unique creations. I was inspired by a particular jacket in the collection which appeared to be made out of none other than foil. This top from .Shi, with it's asymmetric cut and belted waist, was just the design I was looking for. The pants from Solidea Folies, came close to a pair worn with a particular Margiela design which exuded an almost gypsy/ circus like flair. I wanted to give my styling an almost industrial edge, so kept the colors metallic down to the chunky jewelery by Amorous. To add a splash of color, and as a nod to the full masks worn by the models in Margiela's runway show, I accented my styling with Solidea Folies "Conceptual" half mask in red. Style inspiration can be found here:
