Just kidding! The coat above was the single fur-like item on the runway. The puffer jackets that look like fur are in fact not fur and not even faux-fur, but a print imitation of some sort of wolf fur. That means the design collective of MM6 Maison Martin Margiela anticipated the animal skin-heavy runways trending, jumped ahead, and re-imagined it. Those clever minxes. The print was found on handwarmers, those long wrap collars last seen on Thakoon's runway (his were actually in mink), eskimo gloves, and, of course, giant puffer coats. The rest of the collection showed the brand's expected design oddities, like the hooded pancho with nary an "ethnic" reference and the literal screen prints of the MM6 store. Take a look after the jump.
