Maison Martin Margiela 20: The Exhibition

I finally managed to get together with a friend and go see the Maison Martin Margiela Exhibition held at The Somerset house. Personally, I think this is one of the best exhibitions I have seen at the Somerset house.
My 3 favourite things:
1. The screening room: A room with the walls filled with a collection of various sized television screens or projections showing images of past shows, lookbooks and personal clients modelling their Margiela wardrobes. Sitting in the white sheet covered chairs, all I needed was a gin and tonic and I could have sat there forever.
2. The flat series video: A demonstration on how the pieces that are designed to lay flat are worn. There is a lot of DIY potential in this video and you don't need the flat items to do it.
One clip showed a girl wearing a bodysuit over jeans and putting over it a white shirt and tucking in the bottom of the shirt up into the bottom of the bodysuit. Sounds wierd but it looked great!
Another clip showed a girl wearing a set of suspenders/braces but the straps met in the middle of the jeans at the button. Here she also put on a white shirt and tucked the front around the suspenders for some more ruching. I don't know if you can picture this? I wish I had this video to show you.
3. The trench coats: see photo. I want them all.
4. Oh wait, there is a fourth reason. The hair attached to the headband to create long bangs/fringe. I really want one in a normal length fringe just for one day as I am too nervous to cut!

I love how Tommy Ton captured this moment between friends, it looks like this woman is telling a story behind the necklace her friend is admiring. Ultimately, we dress for our girlfriends and it feels nice when your friends like what you do!

I miss all my Canadian friends!

Gorgeous Necklaces from Hoss Intropia

Spanish high street shop Hoss Intropia always have the most creative and prettiest jewelry. I find their accessory line much more sophisticated than the clothing. Their bags, shoes and jewelry could be a shop in itself. It is crafty but not overly so and most pieces are quite substantial in size making them perfect statement accessories.
These are some of the Spring pieces they are showing online, except they don't tell you the price online so I may have to pop in there this week to take a look.

This is what I will be doing tomorrow as it is actually sunny in London. After that I will try to be inspired to post something new!
