Jewel neckline. Silk-satin fabric. Pleats. This fuschia dress ticks off all those “classic” boxes. Until you get to the hem. The touch of asymmetry—which results in a pleasing flutter when you walk—makes this Maison Martin Margiela dress something special.

In a sea of boring sheaths, you’ll stand out just the right amount.
