The house continued to look to its historical archive to develop an urban wardrobe, this time based on tailored men’s wear and blanket-inspired outerwear. The latter idea stemmed from Margiela’s famous duvet cover coat from fall 1999; a new puffy version came more constructed, while an oversize cape and coat were made from satin-trimmed wool blankets. Tailored looks included a stiff vest in industrial felt, as well as a classic camel double-breasted coat. Leathers and skins were plentiful and sometimes fake, i.e., the fluid evening gown in faux black leather.
