• 1988 began the legacy of renown brand Maison Martin Margiela, making a global stamp as one of the more forward-thinking, intelligent approaching designer brands in the industry. Utilizing everyday, ordinary elements, Margiela tends to celebrate what most brands chose to hide and pinpoints the fine details. Curating fascinating finishes that are simplistic in operation but complex once gazed upon, Maison Margiela has returned in 2016 maintaining it’s established aesthetic.
For the first installment of their intriguing SS’16 collection Maison Margiela revisit a series of elements that have shaped their distinctive style, moving the brand firmly forward into a new era, lead by iconic British designer John Galliano.
Paint, an unexpected form of embellishment that has become key to Margiela’s collections over the years is once again seen splattered across leather sneakers and wallets, whilst tees bare the Margiela name scrawled white paint across the chest. Expect reversible bomber jackets, sharply tailored city coats and brushed flannel shirts, all staples of any contemporary wardrobe – remodeled and shaped to fit with Galliano’s cutting-edge vision for the house’s latest incarnation.
The latest additions to the ever-expanding footwear collection include a fresh look at the cult ‘future high’ model constructed with fully transparent uppers, offering the wearer a window to the inner workings of the sneaker’s construction; elevating ordinary, necessary details to the sneaker’s finest feature.
