MARTIN MARGIELA - STREET SPECIAL EDITION - VOLUME 1 & 2
Dolls' clothes and photoprints, transparent dresses, halved sweaters worn on top of other garments, external seams, flat clothing, hand-painted jeans worn under a dress or a skirt, these are some examples of what has come from past Martin Margiela collections. His creations are known for their mixture of renovation and wearability, for his ingenious solutions to how a garment's essential elements can be re-imagined. This volume presents the two editions of Street magazine devoted to Margiela's work, and offers a complete and expansive view of the first ten years and 20 collections of Maison Martin Margiela. Originally available only in Japan, this volume contains many previously unpublished photographs selected from the archives of Maison Martin Margiela. Volume 1 covers his collections from Spring/Summer 1989 up to Autumn/Winter 1995-1996, and Volume 2 covers all of his collections for women up to Spring/Summer 1999, as well as the first presentation of 10, a wardrobe for men, and Maison Martin Margiela's participation in three exhibitions held in Brussels, Florence, and Rotterdam.
