Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal FW 2011/2012

July 11th, 2011

The biannual Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal collection is one of the few fashion things I’m always looking forward too. It’s always entertaining. So here are my 2 picks of the FW 2011/2012 collection.

A shearling lined parka assembled of 4 backpacks.

If you’re a runner, then you might recognize the pattern on this shirt … it’s the design of the X-Socks Run Speed One. And make sure to have a closer look at the “shoes” in this collection.

Maison Martin Margiela Atelier Artisanal

December 29th, 2009

I’ve featured many different Artisanal collections by Maison Martin Margiela before. The collection is always very limited and made by hand. All the designs are made of “found objects” like ski gloves, elastic cords or fake eyelashes. And that’s what I mostly found interesting about it. This video shows you the atelier where those pieces are made. We’ll see if something will change now that Martin left the Maison.

Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Fall 2009

July 9th, 2009

Maison Martin Margiela killed it again with its Artisanal Fall 2009 collection. They must have a big laugh at everyone who take the whole fashion circus too seriously. Their message to the normal people is probably DIY, just go to your local hardware store, buy anything and wear it.

Maison Martin MargielaMaison Martin Margiela is back with the Spring Summer 2007 artisanal collection. This time you won’t get a ski gloves jacket but a zipped nylon travel bag jacket … And while it only takes 53 hours to produce one, you’ll get one for €5330.

Jacket = 103 hours

November 7th, 2006

margiela.jpgThis is not your average winter jacket, this one is by Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal and is made of ski gloves. It takes 103 hours to create one and costs $15,124. Unique.

Ski gloves are used as the raw material to create a blouson with or without sleeves.
Over dyed in dark colours the gloves are unstitched and laid flat so that all original detailing may remain intact and they may be assembled directly on a black cotton base prepared on a tailor’s dummy. Two inserted pockets are added to the front of each blouson.
