Martin Margiela's Spring-Summer 2007 collection marks the last step in his creative journey, a break with his previous research. By observing his time and fashion through magazines, the designer feels the need to turn his back on what he has so far presented in ready-to-wear, taking care to always address the same women. He rejects the elements of his collections that he considers caricatured and takes new directions: sharpness replaces wrinkled and worn, design replaces deconstructed and the men's suit jacket feminizes into a tailor's jacket.
Margiela retains only a few of the ideas found in her archive boxes and decides to look for inspiration among her childhood fashion memories. He who hates elaborate colour schemes remembers the worst with amusement: the shop windows in the spring of the early 1970s, decorated in blue-white-red, with strong stripes, dots and stars... The tabi boots are abandoned in parades, replaced by transparent PVC mules and pumps, with a heel made of a slice of plexiglass.
