Maison Martin Margiela, Spring 1998 Nylon Stretch Flat T-shirt
“When not worn these pieces are totally flat,” read the words at the back of a stage, on which men in white lab coats presented clothing on hangers as if at an auction. Spring ’98 involved geometry, specifically how to make two-dimensional garments that would lie perfectly flat when not on a three-dimensional body.
The item for sale here is a fine example of the Maison taking a regular basic, a t-shirt, and creating an alluring design twist. Constructed in a way in which when not worn the garment lays completely flat, done so by using just one panel for the whole shirt and cutting it to align. Manufactured by Miss Deanna in a nylon/elastane blend to accommodate the wearers body.
(A lot of stretch)
