Opening Ceremony is making strides in fashion history. The painfully cool boutique has been involved in collaborations with numerous creatives (Chloe Sevigny, Levi’s, Pendleton to name a few), but never have they worked with anyone with the same gravity as the elusive Martin Margiela, in my opinion.
MM6 Maison Martin Margiela x Opening Ceremony knit long vest
The capsule collection Opening Ceremony is doing with Margiela’s MM6 showcases Margiela’s oddly utilitarian pieces made casual-cool for the young and restless Opening Ceremony client. Many of the pieces can be worn multiple ways: jackets with detachable linings, boots with removable extensions, stirruped leg pullovers that could be worn high or scrunched low.
the multifunctional jackets
boots with removable extensions. I like them worn with the colors mismatched.

the same pullovers in denim
Though the capsule collection was mostly womenswear, this black knit deep v-neck seems like a good crossover piece: worn (dangerously low) on its own in the summer, and layered over and under everything in fall/winter.

Humberto, would you be so kind to orchestrate a men’s Margiela x Opening Ceremony line soon? Thank you ever so much.
