Artisanal 00-02 Dark Livid Painted Denim
Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal “010” 00-02 Dark Livid Painted Denim. Object painted garments are early Margiela designs which later were engrained as key motifs to Margiela’s foundations. Dyed pants, shirts, and jackets today are a repetition in part of tradition to Margiela’s original designs such as the artisanal pants here. Although current day painted garments are quickly pushed through a production line, artisanal pieces are hand painted on carefully curated vintage levis denim by the Margiela team thus making them very limited in quantity. Mens painted artisanal pieces throughout the early 2000’s were applied with a myriad of colours and paint compositions; Some the paint chipped away as the item was worn, others were more solid but didn’t reflect light, a few were merely just clear coats with little colour added.
Dark livid, or a desaturated blue grey, painted denim. Features a thick sheen added which makes the pants almost look like leather. Understated colour, however applied thick, which blocks the true colour of the jeans underneath. Paint is robust and will take longer to degrade.
8/10 condition, some distressing may be part of the original jeans. Repaired minor crotch blow out. Size M fits a roomy 31. Straight leg. Unhemmed.
