Maison Martin Margiela Clothing

French

Belgian designer Martin Margiela (b. 1957) — whose life, career, clothing designs and vintage shoes have become cult-collector obsessions — pushed those who attended his shows outside their comfort zones. In the years following his maison's 1988 debut, he toyed with creative and aesthetic paradoxes that persist in fashion today.

Consider the Spring/Summer 2001 shirt patchworked from vintage clothing labels, or his famous corset dresses made from tailoring dummies, from his Fall/Winter 1997 line. Or his oversize collection for Fall/Winter 2000. In 1992, Margiela told Dépêche Mode magazine, “My clothes appeal to women of a certain mindset rather than of a specific age or physique.”

Born in Genk, Belgium, in 1957, Margiela knew he wanted to be a fashion designer after catching glimpses of Parisian fashion on TV as a child. Although his parents discouraged this career choice as an oddly funny aspiration, Margiela enrolled in the fashion program of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. There, he befriended and graduated a year ahead of the Antwerp Six — the acclaimed group of Belgian fashion designers comprising Dries Van Noten, Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Marina Yee, Dirk Bikkembergs and Dirk Van Saene.

Like many of his contemporaries in the 1980s, Margiela understood Paris fashion but felt a deep resonance with the deconstructed beauty espoused by Japanese designers Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo, of Comme des Garçons. Margiela’s fascination with Japan influenced many of his earliest collections and designs, from a dress pieced together from broken plates to his iconic Tabi boots, inspired by the split-toe Japanese worker’s shoe, which dates back to the 15th century. He decided to launch his own line while working for renowned Paris designer Jean Paul Gaultier.

Margiela, Gaultier has often stated, was his best assistant. Even then, the 2019 film Martin Margiela: In His Own Words suggests, he was acutely aware of the widening gulf between the art and the business of fashion.

Margiela’s debut show was nothing short of spectacular. Set in a packed Café de la Gare in the still-seedy Marais district, it was also scandalous to the Parisian fashion set of the time. The designer tore up the conventions of contemporary couture presentations, most notably having his models, plucked from the streets and wearing ink-blotted Tabis, wend their way through the crowd. The show redefined the concept of the runway in a way that would later inspire such designers as Alexander McQueen and Demna Gvasalia.

While the notoriously private designer retired from fashion in 2009, for many Maison Martin Margiela collectors, his pieces capture the irreverence of the postwar, post-punk late 1980s and ’90s. Katy Rodriguez, cofounder of the cult vintage fashion shop Resurrection, is among those who felt a connection to Margiela’s clothing in the subliminal challenges it posed to the time’s beauty norms.

“Growing up in San Francisco and coming out of the end of punk rock, not wanting to be objectified, not wanting to be seen as a sexual object, not wanting your value to be just because you’re pretty — all those clothes played into all of that,” she says. “It really was a reflection of the kind of world the young people I knew at the time wanted to live in.”

Couture MartinMargiela 1997 Draped Convertible Vest Skirt Cape Black Tyvek Dress
By Maison Martin Margiela
Located in Chicago, IL
Contemporary artist Martin Margiela, while initially a fashion designer, gave TheMet's Costume Institute from his seminal 1997 "Wordrobe" collection a couture trio, which he titled "Drapery Study: study of draping on bust, half dress and backless vest", whereafter in 2016 the museum made a rare purchase of another of his 1997 ensembles. Our couture bodice from the Artisanal line "0" by Margiela in 1997 features its iconic "ghost" off-white four-corner-stitched blank brand tag. But ours is a one-piece variation of the half dresses and backless vests that Margiela famously associated with Stockman dress forms, which have since become some of the most coveted pieces of 20th-Century fashion. This collection earned him the role of Hermes creative director that same year, whereafter his first collection for the venerable luxury brand debuted in 1998. TheMet wrote about its designer-gifted 1997 ensemble in its summary of New Clothes Acquisition of the 1990s: "to exemplify the conceptual basis of dressmaking Margiela's paramount concern to return to the raw materials of dress often exchanges finish and finesse to something more akin to process in modern art". Like that ensemble, our satin-finish black rectangular-panel garment can be draped in multiple ways to create different functions because of its unusual non-fabric soft material Tyvek and the way that the two black grosgrain ribbons are attached. Based on our experience with other Martin Margiela limited-edition Artisanal objects, there may be two that exist in black (see our other listing for the boxed set including a white harness/lingerie). TheMet also acquired from the 1997 Maison Martin Margiela Stockman...
