Maison Martin Margiela has just released their new Autumn/Winter12 Collection. Typically subversive and individual, this new collection offers a number of pieces that are inspired by black bin bags, turning an everyday object into a luxury garment. Alongside these avant-garde show pieces we have a range of fantastic basics including sweatshirts, shirts, and t-shirt.
Maison Martin Margiela 10 Show Down Gilet. The gilet is filled with goose down and is fantastically warm. Heat is also trapped by the high neck section, while a reference to its bin bag influences appear at the bottom hem, where there is an inbuilt cord to cinch in the hem. A shiny black finish, once again, gives a nod to the gilet’s origins.
Maison Martin Margiela 10 Double Faced Hoodie. The sweat is finished with a black pull-cord with robust toggles, and the iconic quad-stitch. Made in Italy from 100% cotton.
Maison Martin Margiela 10 Aids Awareness T-Shirt. For Autumn/Winter the t-shirt is produced in the traditional v-neck shape and a shade of washed brown. As ever, it bears slogan ‘There is more action to be done to fight aids than to wear this t-shirt but it’s a good start.’ A sentiment that we share.

Presenting a polarised vision of masculinity, Raf Simons’s final Autumn/Winter 12 collection for Jil Sander brings together sinister black leather pieces and childlike knitted items. This includes fantastic dinosaur and whale knitted jumpers, plus unique cardboard sandwich bags.

It features a deep drawstring hood, two pockets on the front and has elasticated cuffs for a snug fit. The jacket fastens with a zipper and press studs, and is trimmed in luxuriously soft leather at the pocket flaps and front closure.
Jil Sander Camel Blend T-Rex Knit. Exploring man’s fascination with dinosaurs, this thick camel blend jumper is a rich winter style that has a childlike innocence and simplicity. Crafted from a soft blend of wools, the jumper is both warm and thick. It is a regular-fitting design that combines rich navy blue with bold red dinosaurs knitted into the front. The jumper is finished with ribbing at the collar, cuffs and hem to give a comfortable and cosy fit.
