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.

“LIVING FASHION. Women’s Daily Wear 1750-1950”, exhibition at MoMu Antwerp Fashion Museum

LIVING FASHION. Women’s Daily Wear 1750-1950
In the 19th century, the growing social importance of the middle classes brought with it a new group of wealthy citizens who wanted to show off their status through their clothing and behaviour. This stimulated consumption and fashionable activities amongst the women in these social circles. Travelling, sports, walking and shopping became new forms of passing leisure time, all requiring specific apparel. In addition to the clothes they wore, the organization of their days also followed fashion trends. Mornings were for indoor activities, the afternoons for visits and ‘outdoor activities’, and each moment of the day had its own particular dress code.
Taking part in ‘high fashion’ increasingly became a must for an ever-growing group of consumers, but these women did not simply let themselves be dictated by fashion. They also helped form fashion through their own changing customs and living habits. As they still do today, consumers were frugal and creative with ever-changing fashions. Dresses were remade and sometimes completely transformed to fit the new, fashionable silhouettes. Re-using fabrics was perfectly normal, even for the upper classes.
On the basis of historical silhouettes from the extensive apparel collection of Jacoba de Jonge, now almost entirely incorporated in the MoMu collection, we sketch a picture of the relationship between the fashion ideals of the day and the clothing that people were actually wearing.
LIVING FASHION. Women’s Daily Wear 1750-1950. From the Jacoba de Jonge Collection runs from Wednesday 21st of March till Sunday 12th of August 2012.
