Martin Margiela's Fall-Winter 2007-2008 collection confirms his creative shift towards clearer silhouettes, playing with bright colours and prints, and clothing with a hybrid structure.

At the second pass of the show, compressed by the stretch of black trousers, we can see the volume of these high trompe-l'oeil boots in flesh leather, inlaid with a pair of salomés (Women's shoe popularized in the 1920s, both closed and low-cut, whose vamp extends over the instep by a central strap through which a closing strap passes.) in silvered leather. The trompe-l'oeil and the surprise it arouses is one of Martin Margiela's favourite tricks since his first collection in the spring-summer of 1989.
