Maison Martin Margiela Line 22 Oxfords: Mad Menswear

Maison Martin Margiela Line 22 Oxfords

I’m not much of a cross-dresser. The trend is menswear-inspired pieces, not full-on menswear. Maison Martin Margiela must have missed the memo with these oxfords. I’ll start by saying that I love the vintage vibe of spectator shoes. The silver-painted panel is an interesting touch, as are the metallic laces, but overall, this is just not for me. I prefer the more feminine oxfords from past seasons. These were made as replicas of actual men’s shoes from the ‘70s and I have to say, they did a very nice job of imitating the look. If only they had done as good a job of making me want to wear them! The brown and gold version is barely more palatable. I’m afraid I’ll remain a spectator. Available in black/silver and brown/gold at Barneys New York for $895 each.
