Collapsible content


Graduating from Antwerp's Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the 1980s, Martin Margiela, along with his contemporaries in the Antwerp Six, revolutionized global fashion.

Margiela's impact on the industry was profound, marked by an aggressive restatement of traditional fashion design and a polemical approach to luxury trends.

After working with the house of Gaultier, Margiela founded his label in 1988, absorbing the radical design of Japanese deconstruction and transforming it into a wholly distinctive style.

This book offers an insider's perspective on Margiela's design process, providing a glimpse into the craftsmanship behind pieces prized for their originality, delicacy, and daring.

Beyond recognizable deconstruction tropes, Margiela's work presents a fully considered worldview, characterized by elegance, mystery, and menace.

The book itself, designed exclusively by Margiela, reflects the spirit of his garments, featuring silver inks, ribbon markers, various lush paper types, twelve booklets, and an embroidered white-linen cover—an artful piece that captures the essence of a unique designer's intimate, handmade world.
