The latest show in Paris by Maison Martin Margiela was a slightly more ostentatious affair than usual from the private designer. With a vague stars and stripes theme the models paraded out in what seemed like an ironic take on preppy 80's America. Some of the designs also featured 'flesh'-coloured jersey outfits with a musical note or bra shape in black, but on the whole the outfits exuded an air of sober confidence.
