Maison Martin Margiela Wallets: Cash-and-Carry

These aren’t so much wallets as they are actual bags. At least, Maison Martin Margiela’s supposed cash-and-cardholders wouldn’t be very functional for me.

Good and bad, negative and positive, illusion and reality, hard and soft: however you talk about it, opposites attract. This season, nobody has seemed to embrace the notion of smooth contradictions more than Phillip Lim.
