Maison Martin Margiela

A Magazine Curated By is the new name of the Belgian fashion magazine whose title previously played with the letters of the alphabet. Insiders, we know, cherish the issues “curated” by fashion designers Dirk Van Saene (N°A), Bernhard Willhelm (N°B), Hussein Chalayan (N°C) and Olivier Theyskens (N°D). This issue will undoubtedly become a collector’s item as well since our guest curator is Maison Martin Margiela.

Each issue is a new adventure. Because our guests “design” their own magazine, it is “invented/reinvented” over and over again. With Maison Martin Margiela this adventure brought us into contact with everybody that has ever had ties with the house, long or short. Permanent staff members, casual collaborators, trainees, assistants, models, artists, photographers, musicians, choreographers, filmmakers: some of them are still closely connected to the house, others have since gone their own way. Maison Martin Margiela and the “extended creative life and expression of the house” became the leitmotiv. Therefore this magazine is like a reunion, where all of these people were invited to be present within its pages, to show what they are working on at the moment or a piece of work which still remains very dear to them.

Since its very beginnings the Maison has worked with white, in all its shades and temperatures, as a unifying signature. A trace of these whites, in their many expressions, overt and hidden, runs as a thread between the participations.


“The past is what bonds us – The future leads us” became the dress code for this reunion. You are more than welcome to share this moment of creative expression with Maison Martin Margiela in A Magazine Curated By.
