Visit the exhibition that highlights a collaboration between Hermès and the Belgian designer Martin Margiela, from 1997 to 2003, with your private guide at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Enjoy skip-the-line and discover the universe of Martin Margiela through this unique tribute which 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.
Once you meet your guide at the designated meeting point, get ready to submerge in the world of fashion. First you will be briefed in fashion history, and then learn about Martin Margiela and how he turned into one of the most eminent designers nowadays. You will discover two distinct styles that reveal a fascinating dialogue between the clothes designed by Margiela for Hermès and those created for his own maison. The display features a succession of themed sequences with over 100 outfits, photographs and short films in a circuit in which Hermès orange interacts with the white of the Maison Martin Margiela. This is the first time that the Musée des Arts Décoratifs has taken a close look at a major chapter in the history of fashion, where a designer divided his attentions between collaborating with other houses and his own.
