Margiela ella ella hey hey
Well I for one wasn't expecting to like the Margiela show at Somerset House nearly as much as I did. As it turns out my reservations, as usual, were completely unfounded. But, leaving it after a nice little Friday afternoon jaunt, we were slightly confounded by the fact that we actually felt really good for having seen it. Maybe it has something to do with what seems to be the Margiela philosophy - heavy on wit and uncompromising conceptually, and yet completely practical. Taking itself seriously and yet not. Even now I'm feeling impressed. See it.
