Past and present, Margiela is one of the most important houses in fashion. The lore and mystery behind the Maison Margiela, paired with its deconstructivist designs and meticulous tailoring, has helped the fashion house solidify its place as one of the most influential brands in avant-garde fashion. Since its inception, the brand has masterfully found ways to reinvent classic garments in a manner that is emotionally and culturally resonant.
Martin Margiela's eponymous brand sprang up in 1988 as a direct counter to the overdesigned garments of the time. From day one Margiela worked to challenge the norm by juxtaposing his unparalleled attention to detail with his deconstructed aesthetic in his collections. This aesthetic is still very much part of the brand today, taking form in imaginative, playful, and sometimes ironic designs. While more subtle design choices, like the now-iconic reverse boxed stitching, have become a symbol of quiet confidence and exclusivity.
Maison Margiela's core design tenet is clothing first. Even more so, much of the designer's appreciation for tailoring is still deeply embedded in the fashion house's men's ready-to-wear. This translates to a high-quality collection of staples, outwear, and knitwear that is ever-evolving and that fit effortlessly on the body.
