Maison Martin Margiela FW01 Artisanal Reconstructed Military Vest. Margiela’s eponymous line, “010” and “0”, are artisanal garments which paved a basis for the foundations of Margiela’s core designs. Reproductions and reinterpretations have been made over the years, even after Margiela’s departure from his own label, but the original artisanal garments are hand sewn in low quantities by the Margiela team, at the atelier, with vintage or hand selected fabrics. Due to the nature of the artisanal line’s creative process, each “010” or “0” item has mild variations. The artisanal men’s “010” line has been in a long hiatus until very recently reintroduced by now creative director Galliano.
Vest was made from military cargo pants, jackets and utility pockets rearranged and placed on top of each other and protruding from the sides. Pockets are lined in multiple materials with absent or replaced hardware. Each reconstructed pocket carries details which resemble the very nature of where the fabric originated.
