The spring-summer 2002 season presents the final point of Martin Margiela's research on the oversize wardrobe initiated in spring-summer 2000.
In one gesture, the Belgian designer concludes his research: this trench coat, enlarged to 200%, is cut raw at waist height, creating three-quarter sleeves. This irregular cut allows the inside of the garment to protrude. All these trench coats are worn over a dress lining or, bare shirt, over a skirt lining.
The trench coat is a garment that Martin Margiela often approaches between 2000 and 2009 whether it is oversize (spring-summer 2000), with an integrated hood (autumn-winter 2005-06) or with a conical fit (autumn-winter 2008-09).
