well they did say he had been gone for a long time so you'd really have to point the finger at rosso for leading everybody on all this time.

i really believe he left after the anniversary collection last spring.

I agree, that's when things went very downhill.

isnt it rsther interesting, almost like the perfect exit for him.
the man who no one really knew, whom many wondered if he really existed, has left and we are not really sure if he really left, or when he left.
there is a simplicity to his work, that on the surface and to the unlearned, would suggest that anyone could do it...............
for us only to realize that its so complex that only he can do it.........


On a serious note though, I heard from a reliable source that a major store and faithful supporter of his line here in New York is planning on dropping the line for the upcoming season.......................

I don't want to sound drastic, but right now I just want to see the House closed. I'm hating this wave of media coverage and the desperate approach to point a new head designer. Margiela has never caused a stir of this type. From the beginning the only thing on the table to be discussed was his design philosophy, which will always be an exciting theme to debate. This scandal is just too dark and messy to continue thinking about it.

Personally, MMM won't be making any sense without its creator. More than simple garments, Margiela grasped fiercefully the concept one's history; in his case, the wearer of his designs. It was an unique symbiosis between his method and the body of his costumer. It was more than fitting and draping. The garments needed to be believed and accepted in their true essence.

I'm too shocked to even see this continue...

many of us know that Margialas following is significant in the art world, and customers with critical eye have been complaining that the quality has gone downhill and its just not the same..............

^they have indeed. and not just recently either. i've had friends tell me since rosso got involved the quality is nothing like it was before. i can only imagine how much worse it is and will be now.

Renzo Rosso is in the business of jeans, not fashion.
I fear Margiela has done a runner like Lang or Sander. Time to get out while the going was good. Enough is enough sometimes even for the strongest designer and since fashion has no mercy...

you said it. I think Rosso's plan and the direction they're taking... it's all very insulting, not only to the fans, but especially to the man himself.

worse than the quality is the fact that theyre still charging the same price. it's like prada, except without the design concept.

My friend is convinced that Margiela is not a real person LOL and this confirms his thoughts on the matter.

This is like confirming the sky was blue today. I get depressed if I think about this too much.

This is most unfortunate news...and shame on the way they handled it.

Does it mean the latest collection was not done by Martin Margiela himself? Really sad news.
Well, he said he'd been gone for quite some time, right?

I took it that he was going all mystical on us and meant that Margiela's spirit lingers on ...
