Margiela's Home Line

Martin Margiela is one of my favorite designers. He's known for his weird, unusual, yet unmistakable designs. Crazy hair coat on the cover of Purple magazine ring a bell? Overtime I have grown to embrace the weirdness and have grown to love his work. Take one look at Carine Roitfeld's Margiela boots and you'll love him too.

As you can imagine, I was thrilled to hear he is starting a line of home designs. Although his home line has not been created for retail yet, he did put some of the items on display last month in Milan.

Inside a large, open room were various replications of Margiela's office, all of which were as covered in white fabrics. There were various other unusual items such as large metallic balls, random doors, and a chair hanging from the ceiling. As to be expected, his home line adheres to the deconstructionist, minimal characteristics that have defined Margiela for the last 20 years.

Get a first look at Margiela's home line and check out more photos of the one room office.

Knowing me, I'd fall right out of that chair and do a header right onto the spike heel of one of those boots.
