Maison Margiela Artisanal Reconstructed Military Vest - SS01
Details Deterring from the traditional celebrity lifestyle known throughout the industry, the elusive Martin Margiela believed that clothes should speak for themselves. Before his tenure at the Maison, Margiela studied under Jean Paul Gaultier as an assistant where he sought out to learn the ins and outs of a fashion house. After accomplishing what he set out to achieve Margiela was encouraged to establish his own. Taking cues from French deconstructionist Jacques Derrida, the designer was known for looking back at the history of fashion and reinterpreting different styles. His most beloved line to this day “Line 010” specializes in reconstructing new garments out of used and abandoned pieces, giving the clothes a new life. As with most Artisanal Margiela garments, this Vest was reconstructed using vintage military jackets, cargo pants and leftover pockets. Each pocket is unique to the garment and showcases the rich history and utility of the pieces that were used to make the vest. This process was unique to Margiela’s artisanal line and was used to highlight the various cultural aspects of garments throughout time.
