Maison Margiela is a French fashion house founded by Martin Margiela in 1988. The brand focuses on producing the finest pieces of today’s menswear from fine jewelry, apparel and footwear. The brand can be described as avant-garde and produces deconstructed, mysterious and DIY themed pieces.
Maison Margiela showcases out of the box elements such as exposed seams, oversized fitting and uses traditional fabric linings as the outer layers of garments for a truly special aesthetic. The brand is recognized by a set of numbers from 0-23. As the brand doesn’t use logos, the set of numbers represents a different product category in which that product belongs and can be easily recognized as a Maison Margiela piece. One of the brands' most well-known products is the Replica Low sneaker that takes on the silhouette of a German Army Trainer.
Maison Margiela has collaborated with many recognizable brands from Hermes, Converse, Swarovski and more.
