Maison Martin Margiela 'Artisanal' Show 2015

The ‘Artisanal’ Collection

A process of discovery, returning to one’s roots. Piece by piece, deconstructing and constructing a new story for Margiela. 

A deep commitment to the extraordinary possibilities of the Maison’s Atelier and the art of Haute Couture.


Approaching tailoring, techniques, craftsmanship like a new explorer, or painter. One who sees beauty in things that are often taken for granted, giving everything a newly enriched life. 


A powerful and fierce yet refined mix of fabrics and materials. Stripped down, or reborn together in startling and unexpected ways.


New direction given with play on proportion and sartorial rules. Languid, sweeping. Precise tailoring. A new 

fuller, revealing silhouette. 

Eyes wide open in wonderment to a veritable Cabinet de Curiosités. A jigsaw of lacquered shells reminiscent of Arcimboldo style figures. A miniature battalion charging across a black velvet shoulder. Pearls that bring teardrops of memories to the face.


Looking through the glass, discovering an elusive, rare even arrestingly strange new beauty, of muses who nonchalantly arouse your senses. 


The Finale of Toiles. The Cabine marching in honest testimony of the process, the trials and errors, the time and emotion behind each cut, each line, each vision.


A world deep in its past but with promises of the future.

And now that he has the opportunity, Momoa adds more layers to Arthur, and plays him as a man of surprising emotional intelligence nothing at all like the headbanging ogre that he was in Justice League, Ray Ban Glasses expressing himself in monosyllabic Coach Outlet Store grunts. Heard Mera is the perfect foil to his New Jordan Shoes 2020 brash bravado, an equal who can show him his Coach Outlet place.
