Maison Martin Margiela, Spring 1994 Cigarette Shoulder Peacoat
For the first time in fashion history, a designer looks back on their previous designs and formulates a whole collection reproducing staple items. Using the same construction and materials, items were made and distinguished by a grey hue that featured throughout. Models had black stencils added to their necks to showcase which season the items/look they were wearing are from.
Here we see the iconic Cigarette shoulder peacoat, first presented in Winter 1989, this time coming in felted grey wool. Featuring four pockets on the front, large pleated leather buttons, anatomical pleating and stitches across the body and arms. Then finally the cigarette shoulder is intricately placed around a back gusset detail.
