Mysterious Belgain designer Martin Margiela is the man behind the avant-garde label, Maison Martin Margiela...the answer to yesterday's quiz. There isn't a lot of information to be found regarding the extremely discreet Margiela who has managed to stay out of the public eye, but at the same time has made a massive impact in the world of fashion. Apparently, Margiela has left the brand (official as of December 2009) handing the reins of Maison Martin Margiela over to a new and fresh design team.
SJP wears Margiela's cloven boot in February 2009
Look closely at yesterday's posting... can you see what appears to be an early version of the boot 17 years before SJP caused a frenzy?
I like long walks on the beach, Mediterranean food and foreign films. But seriously, I've been a designer for 18 years and I started this blog to discuss art, fashion and pop culture. When I'm not writing or designing, you can find me in downward dog (on a yoga mat :-) or running in Central Park listening to some super fast, pop punk tunes from the late 70's/early 80's.
