Maison Martin Margiela - Artisanal Collection
From the Dianne P. blog - A Shaded view on fashion

Here's what she posts today

Imagine walking into a dark room with mirror like walls when suddenly a window of light opens and framed in darkness the model appears. It was like a fashion red light district one window darkens and another appears. I'm glad Patrick suggested someone hold my bag so that we did not all stumble over it in the darkness. I was only able to take a few images in the dark the rest are in the showroom outside.


Travel Jacket: 53 hours to construct/5330 Euros The jacket is cut from a zipped nylon travel garment bag.

What I loved was the breakdown: "The hours of work necessary for the creation in question includes: the preparation, the finishing and the quality control but exclude the researc of raw material, technical control, necessary treatment (cleaning, softening, dying, etc.) and the fittings. Travel Jacket - February.

These pieces are exclusively available at seven of the Maison Martin Margiela shops around the world. Each month one new theme is introduced for each women and men.

July - Slashed top made out of 4 men's rock t-shirts, slashed vertically and assembled to create a top for women. Top: 12 hours/1235 euros and my favorite the June - Bathrobe made out of vintage unused bath towels of varying weaves and motifs. The towels are overdyed in dark colours to create a patchwork of textures, stripes and embroidered emblems. Robe: 27 hrs/3120 Euros.
