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.

Models wear a bead tie that is open around the neck or tied in the back. This "Nattier" necklace is made in reference to the pearl necklaces crossed on the bust in vogue under Louis XV and notably visible on the portrait of Princess Ekaterina Dmitrievna Golitsyna (1757) by Jean-Marc Nattier (1685-1766), kept at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow.
