the reclusive designer’s 20 year tenure in fashion has never left anyone’s mind. known as the designers’ designer, maison margiela’s approach to deconstruction is one that has thoroughly shaped how the world viewed fashion. the iconic 010 line is perhaps the best representation of this theory. used garments are stripped to the bone so that it can be given a second life through exquisite tailoring and conceptual inputs. combined with the inconspicuous image that margiela has intentionally chosen, margiela’s work offers the audience something to ponder and yearn for.
