For those who do the ever clandestine yet nonetheless extremely creative Martin Margiela and lament his official departure from his eponymous fashion house, Maison Martin Margiela, the label’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection is not one to be missed. This is because it is the last season where Margiela is still officially involved in the brand (Fall/Winter 2010 marks an entirely new chapter where the house’s creative staff was left to uphold the label and deconstructed aesthetics).
As for sneaker purists who enjoy a good pair of clean white or cool black sneakers without adornments that lives up to the luxury standard with premium materials and construction, Maison Martin Margiela is also one of the go-to brands for kicks that can do no wrong. Aside from the low-top versions we had previously covered, this season also sports a hi-top, strappy Velcro version crafted from premium suede and leather for opulent comfort. The broad Velcro straps provide a nice proportional contrast with the rather sleek silhouette while adding a futuristic look. The sneakers also feature Maison Martin Margiela’s signature number logo embossed on a leather patch sewn onto the tongue. The sneakers are available at Rip Ark in tonal black and tonal white, both sitting atop gum soles.
