Maison Martin Margiela is never a brand to shy away from controversy, and is one of the few labels which does as it pleases with a firm direction and boundless creativity (Wool cape made out of ostrich and metal tubes, anyone?) This season, while the Parisian born fashion house continues on its track of recycling, reinterpretation, deconstruction and minimalism, the label reworks this season's iconic t-shirt shape, the pocket tee, with its own idea and agenda-- albeit a rather addicting one. Maison Martin Margiela has remade the pocket tee by adding a cigarette pack-shaped holder to the pocket, and yes, the cigarette pack is fully functional as a storage compartment. Perhaps this pocket masquerading as a pack of 20 will be attracting unwanted attention from people trying to bum a smoke off the wearer, it is probably one of the easiest wearing statement pieces that will guarantee not just curious glances but some late-night, sidewalk friendship. There is currently one left at the Maison Martin Margiela Greenwich store in New York City, so don't wait to get your hands on an intriguing summer purchase. Also, the "smoker" shirts come in a white short-sleeved button down version as well. images via: porvocacao
