i did a crappy web animation of webcam shots of the step-by-step guide on how to make your own socks sweater. the pictures are a bit shoddy though.


pic: webcam shots from A Magazine curated by MMM

the sweater sock that was featured in purple was probably military socks, judging from the colour. its such a fun project, making your own sock sweater.

droogist,i completely agree with that! there's actually some other pics of those shoes on his muse model in Belgian Fashion Design as well as his Street Ed. book. they're really interesting but they were indeed more for concept and the visual than actual commerciality.

You're welcome, guys.

softgrey, there's a little more information about the book here: http://www.contemporaryfashion.net/i...4/uk/work.html

It's a overview of MMM's collections (with an emphasis on their runway and showroom presentations) from '89 to '99.

I would assume it has some relation to Diesel as that is the parent company.

In France? If you're talking about the pieces made in France, then I assume they are made by the atelier, but I don't believe you're talking about the artisanal pieces.
In Italy, Etro is right, Staff International (owned by Diesel) produces some pieces. The shoes are handmade in little artisanal factories (or are said so).

Well I didn't know you were talking about the artisnal (playing card vest, jacket of ski gloves, etc). Aren't they one of a kind? I would assume they were then made in the design studio/atelier.

Yep this is Rosso. Margiela doesn't look like that mix between a cow-boy and Richard Branson. He used to be handsome, at least when he was young (because no photos are avaible since). Good luck if you want to find one, but some old belgie fashion books have it.

Does he even assist to his own shows ? Anyway I don't believe he will ever do a public appearance, that's the only case where the man transforms himself his business into a maison, before his death.
Moreover, there were even rumours that he would no longer design anything (since Diesel's buying) but I prefer not to believe it, since the last two collections were stunning.
I don't have the photo, but maybe we have a nice belgie here who has it.
