“To reuse, recycle and reinvent.” 

As common as this statement might sound. If it is coming out from the mission statement of Maison Martin Margiela (MMM), it has to mean something right. Indeed, at its 5th couture showing under the official haute couture schedule held in Paris, MMM did just that. By reusing, recycling and reinventing vintage/ unconventional materials such as coins (old French francs), Japanese souvenir bomber jackets, 18th century silk lampas, bottle tops, MMM created a show that deviated from luxurious materials. Instead, it was a beautiful show full of character as if a romantic eclectic collector came by.
