Fashion: Margiela takes to the high street

The range will include both menswear and womenswear, as well as accessories, and launches in November. Get queuing now!

The 1966 original (see link below) was good, but the Coen brothers-scripted remake (out October) will surely be better. How can it fail, with Diaz, Rickman, Firth and Mel Brooks regular Cloris Leachman? tinyurl.com/cugcpfx
