Martin Maison Margiela - the heritage
Martin Margiela began his solo fashion career in 1989, surprising the audience with a new definition of "luxury". He has introduced to Paris salons unfinished, grunge designs made of recycled materials. The collection was not received enthusiastically by everyone, although critics noticed a new quality. The subsequent collections are marked with numbers from 0-23. Each number is assigned to project with a particular style and idea. Initially, the brand was making
ready-to-wear and haute couture collections for women. In 1998, the famous men line no. 10 was introduced to the market and this was also when the geometry in women's clothes was rediscovered in Margiela fashion house.
Forms offered by designer are unusual and inspiring, e. g. the tabi - seemingly just common leather shoes - Japanese traditional flaps on a higher platform. But over the years Margiela shoes tabi have become iconic and have been reinterpreted and adapted to subsequent collections. Apart from shoes and handbags, Maison Margiela accessories include eccentric jewelry, homemade gadgets such as door-stoppers, pens and even books.
Margiela shoes - Maison Margiela by John Galliano
Martin Margiela quit his position in Maison Margiela fashion house in 2009, leaving his achievements in the hands of other artists. In 2014, John Galliano has become the head of the brand with only one commandment - creating collections in his own way. The brand is not very into colours - it is based mainly on black and white. The fashion house manifests its innovativeness in surprising constructions, e. g. in mentioned Scarves / shawls tabi or futuristic MM6 line.
