Maison Margiela is one of the avant-garde darlings of the fashion world. The New York Times once called its pieces "made-over flea-market clothes", and that was intended, in the over-wrought world of fashion perfection, as a compliment. This is edgy, high quality statement clothing from a label that's sometimes viewed as creating artworks rather than mere clothing. These are investment pieces, in your wardrobe for a lifetime.
The label was founded by Belgian designer Martin Margiela in 1988 and went on from small but radical beginnings that shocked some in the fashion world - with deliberately exposed seams for example - to being one of the big players, employing for its haute couture ranges the celebrated designer John Galliano. Off-the-peg pieces always challenge convention and are meticulously researched and crafted.
Maison Margiela sizing can seem as original as the label's designs are individual. Generally, once the logic's understood, clothes and footwear fit true to size. Bear in mind that cut and fit may be deliberately large or, indeed, small depending on the design of the item concerned. This may be one very clear case where ordering two of the same item to find your ideal Maison Margiela fit is advisable.
