Maison Martin Margiela: Spring/Summer 2014 “Artisanal” collection

Since its founding in 1988, Maison Martin Margiela has collected used – and sometimes new – clothes, accessories and objects from around the world. One of the cornerstones of the Maison’s creative expression is resurrecting these vintage pieces and recasting them in a new way that preserves the mark of time.

In addition to restoring and reworking these items, they are also reinterpreted in new fabrics. Each Haute Couture piece is made entirely by hand in the Maison’s artisanal atelier. The eccentricity of materials used and the complex and particular processes necessary at each stage of transformation, naturally limit quantities and ensure the unique character of these pieces.

A dive into the world of collectors: lifestyle spaces, archives and limited editions. Their interiors are exteriorised, brought to life.

Anachronistic and eclectic, composed of stories and accumulations, the collection brings together, mixes and recasts textiles made by artists. A presentation of ornaments, decontextualised and inhabited anew. A collector’s collection.
