Maison Martin Margiela Collezione Artisanal

10th february 2007 - 4th march 2007

For the first time ever in Italy, Galleria Carla Sozzani will host a selection of pieces from the Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Collection. The selection will include the most emotionally and creatively important pieces the Maison has created over the years to the present day.
Since its beginnings in 1989, Maison Martin Margiela has accompanied its prêt-à-porter collection with garments, accessories and objects defined by the name “Artisanal”. The Maison’s creative inspiration is born from a poetic conception of imperfections: “our most important source of inspiration has always been the extremes and the changes of every day life”.
The research of used and new materials across the globe, and the belief that these garments and objects may be given a second life, while respecting and maintaining the traces of the passage of time and use, remains one of the keystones of the Maison’s creative expression.
Each garment is reworked entirely by hand at the Maison’s atelier in Paris. The complexity and specificity of each step of such a creative process of transformation naturally limits the quantity of garments produced, while the individuality of the materials used to create each garment ensures its exclusivity.
