Maison Martin Margiela, Fall 1999 Artisanal Reworked Denim Jacket
As Martin Margiela quoted; ‘For us our ‘artisanal production’ (for men and women's garments they may be identified by the 0 (zero) encircled on their label), as we have said here, we rework existing garments, fabrics and objects to recreate new garments and accessories. We first adopted this approach for our inaugural collection for Spring/Summer 1989 and it has been an integral and important element of each and every one of our collections since’.
Margiela and the team ruthlessly searched through Parisian flea markets to find vintage garments looking forward to giving them purpose, reworking existing garments, fabrics and objects to recreate new garments and accessories.
An incredibly intricate design using a selection of vintage denim jacket to rework them into a new cropped silhouette, using different washes and fabric weight throughout. Details include a rounded neck, zipped closure, extended sleeve and zipped cuffs.
