AW10 Wool coat with chain attachment that pulls pocket area into a handbag-like draping

There is nothing more exciting than to visit the very room where something fascinating was conceived. I don’t mean to sound perverse, but I believe Masha Ma is knocked up with a kick-ass collection for SS11, no pun intended! The studio was thick with the smell of steampress and the sound of sewing machines thumping when I arrived, and I couldn’t help but think of all the blogger events PR companies keep churning out, when a simple studio visit as such can instantly inspire. The pieces in this post are from AW10, but it should serve as a worthwhile preview to the upcoming collection. Masha Ma, a CSM MA Womenswear graduate, seems to be particularly adept at tailoring and fabric manipulation, note the origamiesque fold of the black wool coat I squeezed into. Shucks, if Mariano hadn’t wrangled it off of me I’d have come home with it, I think.
This btw is the day of the Seven Sisters incident. I figured if a day is made by a fruitful excursion something has to rain on my parade, this is Londontown afterall.
