(FOR SALE) An Autumn Winter 2008 ‘Artisanal’ Maison Margiela Strip Layered Calfskin Leather

Martin Margiela remains a fashion forefather, avant-garde pioneer and symbol of the anti-fashion circuit. Swimming against the current of haute couture in the late 1980’s, Margiela reworked the seams of the fashion industry in spite of previously retained social norms. The creative worked in conjunction with his team to deconstruct each and every preconceived notion of wearable art, crafting pieces far ahead of their time. Margiela built a new understanding of clothing behind a wall of intense anonymity, letting each piece speak for both itself and the Maison. Martin Margiela questioned the industry and in turn the audience, making for enthralling collections over many decades.

Margin Margiela’s obsession with the color red played a significant role as a subtle pop tone and a dominant leading color through his years at the helm of the label. Never one to be exorbitant with his use of vibrancy, the subtle use of red made its lasting mark on the maison’s legacy. This gorgeous artisanal panelled leather jacket features varying shades of red strips creating an incredible layered effect that gives the jacket visible depth. Coming in a size 48, this jacket fits an oversized medium and is in incredible overall condition with miniscule wear. Here is the opportunity to purchase a true piece of fashion history from one of Martin Margiela’s final collections at his eponymous label.
