Margiela In His Own Words or Without Compromise as it was formerly titled is the upcoming feature-length documentary about Martin Margiela. According to a recently created Instagram account, final touches are being made to the highly anticipated film.
Until now, the film has been shrouded in mystery. Yesterday, however, a post appeared on the new account confirming that creators were “Finalizing the edit of the Martin Margiela documentary.” As the title suggests, the film will involve Margiela himself.
It now seems that documentary filmmaker Reiner Holzemer is director and producer. Holzemer has previously produced films on William Eggleston, Juergen Teller, and August Sander.
As of yet, there is no release date announced, so stay tuned for updates.
Back in 2015 Alison Chernick traced Margiela’s omnipresent legacy in the fashion industry in her short film The Artist is Absent. The documentary explored how the designer remained such a strong influence on fashion, despite his departure from the eponymous label he created.
On this episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by by Jabari “Jacuzzi” Khaled, founder of Basketball Skateboards and under-the-radar creative who’s worked with your favorite designer’s favorite designers.
