If there is an exhibition in the world you cannot miss this 2018, it’s the one featuring Maison Margiela in Paris. A complete retrospective that focuses on one of the most mysterious creators from the world of haute couture, who laid the foundation stone of one of the most conceptual fashion houses, with a refined taste for unstructured and innovative combinations. Real gems of modernity and fine technique.
The exhibition provides a detailed overview of Margiela’s creations and all his contributions to the world of fashion. Because it’s thanks to him that we have those oversized shapes that have become the key of any 21st Century street style, as well as the becoming circle scarves or material recycling to give form to unparalleled creations.
Conceptual and irreverent, Martin Margiela marked a turning point in what used to be perceived as traditional at the end of the 1980s, resulting in creations whose legacy we can discern, even today, in the stitches that give rise to collections currently considered avant-garde. Along the way he introduced an unprecedented purity in dressmaking and employed numerous innovative techniques to bring out the most in all materials performance.
