Faithful to his interest in the games of scale between clothing and the body, Martin Margiela developed the clothing enlargements discussed the previous season for his Fall-Winter 2000-2001 collection.

The shape of these models is similar to that of a very large female body. They march supported by visible silk paper, whose almost museum-like preciousness contrasts with the raw appearance of oversized clothing.
