I liked several pieces in Maison Martin Margiela's Spring 2011 collection and took issue with's lazy review. Too often that website dismisses garments simply because they are not deemed 'wearable'. What a shame and a bore.
The first thing I though of upon seeing the collection was a scene from Modern Times, in which the tramp (Charlie Chaplin) accidently puts his boss' coat (pocket watch and all) into a huge industrial squashing-machine.

It has since struck me that the more obvious reference is a packaged men's shirt. Duh.
