Martin Margiela SS1998 Artisanal Denim Belt

The reclusive Martin Margiela is truly, a designer’s designer. A principle influence on many of both his piers and those who came after, it’s possible to draw an entire family tree of labels born from the ethos Margiela so effortlessly captured. Unlike designers such as Hedi and Rick and Galliano, where the specter of their sheer personality hangs over every creation, one photo of the man exists, and no official interviews were ever conducted, allowing his creations a quality of pure expression largely foreign in the fashion world. His work was often highly deconstructed, challenging notions we take for granted and what clothing and a runway show should be — runways shows in parks, 2-D clothing, models holding hangers with their outfits on them, he upheaved the foundation that nearly every other designer choses to build up from.

This artisanal denim belt comes from SS1998, one of Martin Margiela’s most groundbreaking collections. “When not worm these pieces are totally flat”, read a wall behind the models, while men in basic white lab coats displayed the pieces from hangers.  The belt itself is a light black color, and has three optional closures to accommodate different waists. 

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.

Size: M (fits around a size 29-31)
