The Margiela Spectacle

I was first introduced to the Maison Martin Margiela collection in 96′ by fashion agent/pr Kate Monkton. Kate advised us that it was a collection we had to see.So we made the appointment and on our next buying trip to Paris had an appointment with Axel Keller the Sales Director.

Anyone who knows Axel knows he is a very straight talking serious man, but very pleasant at the same time. Tall and dressed in a long white lab coat, he showed us into a beautiful large warehouse style showroom where everything was white, the walls, tables, chairs, floor, everything white and all of the sales team in their white lab coats.

This surreal scene was pretty forward thinking in those day’s as we had visited lots of showrooms, but Paul and I had never visited a showroom before that looked like a laboratory where everything  was colourless and sterile yet so very artistic. The collection was amazing and very special so of course we bought it!!!

Below we feature a part of the Martin Margiela collection that is currently doing exceptionally well, Margiela eyewear available at avenue32.com.
