On my morning cruise through eluxury.com a strange thing happened. I thought I was clicking on 3.1 Phillip Lim (pondering buying the "Exclusivie Tuxedo" ) and then ended up on...Maison Martin Margiela.

Alas those genius SS08 "black bar" sunglasses are not on the market yet. We're dying for them. Now if only there was such a thing as a Margiela tuxedo, TI could do a complete look.
