ABOUT MAISON MARGIELA

Established "Maison Martin Margiela" in Paris in 1988. Renamed to Maison Margiela in January 2015. Maison Margiela is a French-based fashion brand. Widely available for women's and men's wear, accessories, shoes, fragrances, etc.

Martin Margiela, whose conceptual methods such as clothing restructuring and redefinition and show style influenced many people, and the Maison, which had the greatest influence on the history of fashion.

The collection is grouped according to the concept and numbered, and is circled such as "0", "1", and "4". Among them, line 6 "Clothes for women" became "MM6 Maison Martin Margiela" in an independent form.

When he made his debut in the ready-to-wear collection in Paris in the spring and summer of 1989, he proposed a jacket and bottom with a thin silhouette for the loose silhouette that was popular until then, and the opportunity for a tight and body-fitting silhouette to flourish. It is said that it was made. For this reason, Margiela's style was called "deconstruction" and "Destroy Collection" because it overturned all common sense.

They made clothes from a unique perspective, such as utilizing used clothing (using used clothing for the fabric) and processing new clothing in the style of used clothing. Margiela's style cannot be bound by grunge, but it is described as a shabby look and a pioneering style of grunge fashion that was popular in the '90s.

The label of the clothes is left blank or only the number circled is written, and the person's name and brand name are not written.
