Martin Margiela

Martin Margiela is the quintessential fashion designer and, in this case, this banal cliché is quite justified. Unlike any other designer, he produced a work which is akin to a distinct form of “MetaMode”: indeed, his clothes speak primarily clothing. His particular vision and well defined has become one of the most influential fashion designers and the most iconoclastic that emerged in the last 15 years.

Born in 1959 in Leuven, Belgium, Margiela studied at the Royal Academy of Antwerp and is part of the first wave of new talent in the city. Between 1984 and 1987 he was assistant to Jean Paul Gaultier; in 1998 he founded the house Martin Margiela in Paris and presented his first collection for Spring-Summer wife the same year.

Desperate to define fashion Margiela, with his frankness and mania craft process, the press christened the new style “deconstruction.” Avoiding the cult of personality that reaches many designers Martin Margiela seeks instead to develop a cult of impersonality in overcoming the conventions of the fashion industry.

Never photographed, never interviewed in person (he responds to questions by fax), even the brand of clothing is blank, “6” for female basic and “10” for men. He is also the father of the “work in progress” that is to say, the principle that processes and do not throw.

Socks retrieved from army stocks are piecemeal and assembled sweater; the masculine trouser clamps becomes a skirt; plastic packaging cover morphs top worn over a dress …

Martin Margiela really creates clothes that speak for themselves and Hermes has understood: at the time when it is fashionable to hire personalities in the direction of creation, Hermès hired in 1997 as the principal designer of her Femme line, a choice which turned from very inspired.

In 2000, the first Martin Margiela boutique opened in Tokyo, followed in 2002 by Brussels and Paris. Each of them has the full range of Margiela products, including shoes, books and objects.

July 2002 after the departure of Jenny Meirens, Renzo Rosso, owner of Diesel, became majority shareholder of Maison Martin Margiela. In 2003, the designer ended his collaboration with the house Hermes, and gives way to his former employer, JP Gaultier.

Since he leads his boat and continues to create and innovate, its fashion shows and collections called “artisanal” has never denied his talent and anti-conformism.
