“The Archive Box”, images of Marina Faust at Galleria Carla Sozzani of Milan

November 10, 2017 Leave a comment


Each Archive Box contains a unique choice of 10 images of Marina Faust’s nearly 20-year collaboration with Martin Margiela. The images are re-appropriations of her photo-series done on assignment between 1990 and 2008. She looks at her material again today with a fresh and new point of view. The sources are photo prints, negatives, contact sheets, Polaroids, photocopies and digital material. Marina Faust was the only photographer having worked with Margiela throughout his whole career, which, besides other considerations, makes her archive unique.

She was invited by MOMU Belgium in 2016 to photograph the Hermes archive pieces for the book that accompanies the exhibition ‘Margiela, the Hermes Years’, in March 2017 in Antwerp. Photos out of her archive are also part of the book as well as of the exhibition that is now traveling to other museums.

The Archive Box is an edition of 30.

A signed and numbered certificate comes with each box.

Each print is signed on the back and the season of the collection is specified.

The prints are inkjet prints on acid free silk tissue paper lying on white mat acid free paper.

Margiela, the Hermès years

Margiela, the Hermès years Incontro con Kaat Debo

L’idea era di avere i due mondi di Martin – Maison Martin Margiela e Hermès – uno accanto all’altro. Si vede letteralmente il mondo in arancio e quello in bianco. Kaat Debo

Margiela ha cambiato il corso della moda – ma in modo sottile, sovversivo. Suzy Menkes

Mercoledì 26 aprile 2017 alle 18.30 in 10 Corso Como, Kaat Debo, direttore e curatore capo del MoMu, Museo della Moda di Anversa, presenterà Margiela, the Hermès years il libro che accompagna la mostra in corso al Museo della Moda di Anversa fino all’agosto 2017.

Fluido è una parola che amo, qualcosa di sospeso, fuori dal corpo, ha detto Martin Margiela. Designer di culto, noto per le sue idee d’avanguardia sin dalla sua prima collezione nel 1988, negli anni della collaborazione con Hermès, dal 1997 al 2003, è diventato l’arbiter dello chic francese contemporaneo. Martin è invisibile – ma è come l’ossigeno, invisibile e vitale. Lui ha portato una visione nuova a ciò che noi siamo, disse Jean-Louis Dumas.

Pubblicato da Lannoo, questo libro è nato in stretta collaborazione con Martin Margiela stesso, e include fotografie, documenti inediti e diverse testimonianze. Prefazioni di Suzy Menkes e Kaat Debo, saggi di Rebecca Arnold, Sarah Mower e Vincent Wierink, il volume include numerose interviste tra cui quelle con Sandrine e Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Jenny Meirens e Patrick Scallon.

Margiela, the Hermès years

Rebecca Arnold, Kaat Debo, Elisa De Wyngaert, Sarah Mower, Vincent Wierink, Karen Van Godtsenhoven

Martin Margiela’s pioneering and timeless designs made for the luxury house of Hermès between 1997 and 2003 are the stars of this book, highlighting this period in the iconic and enigmatic Belgian designer’s career. The match between Hermès, the epitome of French luxury, and Maison Martin Margiela’s deconstruction generated an earthquake in the fashion landscape that is still being felt to this day.Innovations in tailoring, technique and materials, as well as a new vision of fashion with an emphasis on comfort, timelessness and tactility created clothing whose primary aim is to please the wearer, not to impress the viewer. An image of women was also introduced that was no longer obsessed with youth but left room for women of different ages, thus generating an alternative vision of beauty.This key period between 20th- and 21st-century fashion is evoked through interviews with Margiela’s closest collaborators, more extensive essays by Rebecca Arnold, Kaat Debo and Sarah Mower, and a foreword by Suzy Menkes. Never-before-published material from the Maison Martin Margiela archives, numerous striking and exquisitely refi ned images from Le Monde d’Hermès, as well as new photographic material tell the story of Margiela’s supreme wardrobe for Hermès.
