Martin Margiela Artisanal Silver Painted Denim

Martin Margiela Artisanal Silver Painted Denim


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. 

These silver painted black jeans put on an eye-catching display of Margiela’s utilization of paint as a texture, and his recurring emphasis on the natural degradation of garments. Though displayed here in excellent condition, the paint is intended chip away through natural wear, revealing more of its base form. From line 0, hand painted in the Margiela atelier.

Condition: 9/10. Any signs of natural wear are not considered flaws, given the nature and intention of the Artisanal line. No stains or damages of that nature. The paint itself is extremely heavy and prevalent.
