WORDLESS WEDNESDAY

The pioneering designer label, Maison Martin Margiela, is about to celebrate 20 years in fashion with a major exhibition at Somerset House, London from this June. Margiela, the elusive Belgian designer who has never been photographed - strangely in this age of instant celebrity-stardom - remains one of fashion's most enigmatic figures.

The Maison Martin Margiela brand was acquired by Diesel in 2002 when rumours circulated that the designer had left the company. Last year Renzo Rosso, MMM’s majority stakeholder, was quoted as saying: "Martin has not been there for a long time. He is here but not here. We have a new fresh design team on board ... this is really Margiela for the year 2015."

Well, dear readers, this is really a WTF moment for Lola! If the future looks like the models above, well, ********! However, since Rod Liddle, the former BBC Radio 4 Today editor, has just become the first British journalist to have an online blog censured by the UK press watchdog, the Press Complaints Commission, http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2010/mar/29/rod-liddle-pcc-spectator, I’d better be extremely circumspect here and add I think the Maison Margiela (or whoever) designs, are er, ... simply breathtaking! What’s your take? This Wordless Wednesday, I’m, er, (almost) wordless!
Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)

I've never heard of this Martin M - well seeing as how he has sort of disappeared - is here but not here - I'll probably never even see him or know who he is if he passed me on this little country street - which is probably the most unlikeliest thing in the world. (if that made any sense at all)

kisses to you and Lola
