Exhibition: ‘Margiela, les Années Hermès’


On show at MAD in Paris


MAD, Paris

The exhibition ‘Margiela, les Années Hermès’ is on show at MAD in Paris from the 22nd March to the 2nd September 2018.

This tribute to Martin Margiela provides the first ever opportunity in France to exhibit his women’s ready-to-wear collections for the famous parisian house in contrast with his own creations under his eponymous label. The interplay of 98 accessorised silhouettes that move between innovative deconstruction and timeless luxury, offers an understanding of and an insight into Martin Margiela’s very personal approach. The fashion designer’s two worlds thus provide the starting point for the “Margiela, les années Hermès” exhibition, for which the artistic direction is to be undertaken by Martin Margiela himself.

The exhibition “Margiela, les années Hermès” was originally devised by the ModeMuseum (MoMu) in collaboration with Martin Margiela and presented in antwerp in 2017. This unprecedented project highlights a collaboration between Hermès and the belgian designer, from 1997 to 2003, that was as surprising as it was fertile.
