"For those who were unable to make it to Paris for the Palais Galliera's recent exhibit on the elusive designer (or for those who were and want to relive it), this book is the perfect way to reflect on Margiela's oeuvre. Spanning 20 years of his career, The Women's Collections is about as close as one can get to actually understanding his genius." --Daily Front Row
