Martin Margiela was known for using continuous references towards military garments in his artisanal pieces which lead him into producing some of his most memorable pieces, forming the ethos of his body of work. He and his team would continuously experiment with surplus material and items that they found at flea markets to create his artisanal pieces and further push the formation of unconventional garments.
This particular piece, which references an A2 flight jacket, has been reinvented into a modernised iteration of the jacket yet still keeping to the original fit and structure. Featuring a lightweight cotton body, with a button-up closure that can be worn multiple ways (as pictured) and a checkered pattern throughout, two flap pockets are seen on the front of the jacket with another two on the inside of each side. Lastly, two epaulettes delicately decorate each shoulder.
