Maison Margiela is a French fashion brand founded in Paris in 1988 by Belgian designer Martin Margiela. The house offers both women’s and men’s fashion and often merges gender codes. It follows an intellectual approach of deconstruction, reinvention and redefinition of men’s and women’s silhouettes. Since 2012, Maison Margiela has held the official ‘Haute Couture’ designation of the Fédération Française de la Couture for its collection called ‘Artisanal’.
In 2014, British fashion designer John Galliano was appointed creative director of the house. Margiela’s uncompromising approach to his iconoclastic legacy is expressed in Galliano’s poetic vision of Haute Couture, where conceptualism is combined with artistry and mystery with modern elegance.
Today the brand has a huge selection of different product categories. The brand’s bags and shoes are currently very popular. Many stars like rapper Drake or Luciano are big fans! For a long time it was quiet around the brand, but since the mention of several rappers the interest in the brand is growing again!
