What are people's thoughts on MMM?

You gotta love the white coats of the staff and every single person representing Maison Martin Margiela.

On of the first Belgium avant garde fashion designers and conceptualist.

In this thread please neglect the discussion regarding MMM Diesel buy out, lets concentrate on authentic MMM work and creativity.

some pics of MARTIN MARGIELA in TOKYO EBISU

A presentation in an abandoned Paris Metro station. The only light is from hundreds of candles attached to the railing. The models walked down the steps to the platform.

Some explanation of MMM lines and labels:

0: collection artisanale for women & men (the couture pieces shown during the haute couture presentations, the men's line are "0 10")

" ": Défilé (runway) collection for women (entirely white label, the original collection, it used to be synonymous with line 1 but hasn't been so since 2008)

1: the collection for women (more intellectual and process oriented line)

3: Fragrance (came out 2012 (?), developped by L'Oréal)

4: a wardrobe for women (more dressy and "timeless" stuff)

mm6: garments for ♀ (used to be just 6, these are the basic garments collection is also called "basic garments for women")

8: eyewear collection

10: the collection for men (equivalent of line 1, started in SS09)

11: a collection of accessories for women & men

12: fine jewellery collection (the equivalent of say Dior Joaillerie, so pricier stuff made in partnership with Damiani group)

13: objects & publications

14: A wardrobe for men (equivalent of line 4, started SS05)

15: mail order (an april 1999 partnership with Les 3 Suisses where garments were sold through their catalogue in France and Benelux)

22: a collection of shoes for women and men (started in AW05-06, previously were in line 1 and 10 so I dunno where the 14 for shoes could come from)

Sartorial: capsule collection part of line 14, basically pricey menswear suits done the traditional way, blingbling gold lining with the words Martin Margiela

Replica: collections 4 and 14 often include "replica" items, you'll see the word on the tag and they're reproduction of vintage objects and the origin is mentionned in a short text

Aids t-shirt: a series of tees to provide money to french charity AIDES fighting, you guessed it "aids", there is a text you can read when the tee is folded but not when you're wearing it.

On the labels you have the numbers from 0 to 23 with the appropriate collection circled but not all of them are in use.
