During its very first show, Maison Martin Margiela bathed their models in red paint before having them walk across the stage. The boots with split toes, inspired by the Japanese tabi sock, left behind striking red prints on the white cotton catwalk. The presentation of the ensuing A/W 1989-1990 collection kicked off with a display of waistcoats made from the paint-stained cotton catwalk of the first show.
