Martin Margiela AW2009 Wine Stain Shirt

250.00

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. 

The most memorable piece os AW2009, the “wine-stain” shirt is a perfect example of the playful subversion Margiela employed. The shirt itself is wonderful, made with an ultra-soft cotton that sits lightly to the body as silk would, it has a formal, pointed collar. The wine-stain can be seen as a lampooning of the purchasing class of designer fashion — a luxurious shirt forever marked with the memory of a night you drank too much in it.
