Wrong place, Nic

So it's 3AM in the morning and Nicolas Ghesquière comes in; and even though Nic might say he likes all that Martin Margiela stuff (oh, he was here a couple of days ago too. He knits.)
Anyway, even though Nic says he likes Martin Margiela what he really likes is Star Trek.
Yes, children; you're adorable, much-worshiped designer is a trekkie.
He comes in with the funny pointy ears and the flattended down hair and the funny Star Trek uniform and does the Star Trek salute.
And then he shoves a stocking over his head when he realizes that Karl Lagerfeld's Very Chic Closest (TM) is not the Star Trek convention. Not even a comic book convention.

So he rings up the Balenciaga people, and they come in their brown cars, with their silly little handbags, and say: "Come on dear, time to go. Have a little cup of tea and you'll be alright".

And then there was 2.

Just my daughter and I.

"So, hmm? What do....people do? Do you ummm, play ball or something?"

comic and Startrec conventions should be the theme for your next collection karl! For sure!And i´m sure you´d be able to scout for "authentic" and social realistic models at one of them too...Or that´s perhaps more Margielas lane?
