Martin Margiela has never failed to surprise us with creative concepts for his work and collections. For Fall/Winter 09, the collection is inspired by 1994 blockbuster thriller, The Usual Suspects, and the 70s. The collection offers a dark and mysterious template blended in with some retro influences. The classic high top sneakers are reinterpreted for this season and reminds us of a less flashy version of the patent Diet Butcher Slim Skin sneakers we introduced a while back. Margiela's high top sneakers have a slimmer front silhouette but the ankle patch and tongue are still heavily padded. The sneakers are made with a mix of nylon and leather perforated upper in a glossy and matt finish. The sneakers are now available online along with some great Martin Margiela knits at Colette.
