the mystery of margiela

Maison Martin Margiela celebrated his 20th anniversary with a two decade retrospective at the Antwerp Mode Museum. The 6 month exhibition ran from last September 2008 till this past Sunday, February 8, 2009.

Though the man himself is a mystery to most, he rarely shows his face or engages in interviews, and yet his designs are unmistakable and the utmost desirable for men and women alike.

I wasn't lucky enough to make it to Belgium to check it out, but I did find some fantastic photos of the exhibit at Antwerp Fashion Observer. Take a look, you'll leave inspired.

Nothing beats his cut-out boots. With the all the rain in Vancouver, though, I just couldn't justify them.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. :)

What a coincidence to read about Maison Martin Margiela. Today, I saw shoes of this designer and I fell in love with them immediately!!

He is so visionary and all is a mistery, they are right but honestly, his last catwalk did not convince me at all, seriously...
