Martin Margiela AW2004 Artisanal Split T-shirt


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 1/1 shirt is made from a combination of a “Popular Mechanics” magazine tee, and one from a Southern Ohio youth group. The remaining half of each shirt is sewn into the inside lining, allowing the top to also be worn inside-out
