About Maison Margiela
Known for applying 'grunge' techniques such as deconstruction, recycling and raw finishes, in an intelligent and sleek manner that provoked shock and intrigue throughout, Maison Margiela cemented his name in the fashion world in 1989 with a collection that challenged what luxury could be. However, as known as the brand is, Margiela rejected the mass media culture, becoming known for staying anonymous throughout his active years, hardly ever been photographed or interviewed. Maison Margiela worked under the collective 'Maison Martin Margiela' for over 20 years, leaving the label in 2009. Now a 'faceless' team continues to represent the grunge deconstructive themes of Maison Margiela, producing unreal and thought-provoking collections.
