MARTIN MARGIELA artisanal top made of army socks - 1991

Price Upon Request

About

Unworn army socks are split open, flattened, then stitched together to form this sweater. The natural morphology of the socks have been maintained yet displaced to create its form; heels become elbows and form the bust line for example. Handmade in Maison Martin Margiela's Paris atelier for the Artisanal line. Only a handful of these were made. This sweater dates to 1991. It fits a US 2/4/6 and it is in excellent condition.
