A testament to the ongoing relevance of the founding ideals of the Maison Martin Margiela, this document celebrates the previously anonymous talents of the house. A Magazine Curated By Maison Martin Margiela lays bare their dedication to such phenomena as the deconstruction of garment-making and the disruption of classical ideals in photography, street casting, unconventional beauty, subversive communication, and a Dadaist approach to the very concept of fashion and object design.
