Maison Margiela 2015 Hand Painted Jeans from line "10" - The Men's Collection. One of Maison Margiela's most iconic pieces is the Hand-painted Jean. Usually in white or black paint, the jeans are hand object coated with paint from head to toe, ignoring hardware or seams. Various signature jeans are made throughout Margiela's upbringing consisting of different paint composition and properties.. The paint composition comes in various forms, sometimes textured, thin and flat or hard and distressed. The more complex and iconic hand painted jeans are from the artisanal line of "0" and "0 10" from the late 90's and early 00's. The H&M + Margiela collaboration played an homage to the original Hand Painted Jean.
Here we have hand painted jeans with what looks like a low resin paint with a lack of paint thinner resulting in a high viscosity finish. This paint composition results in intense cracking and peeling, chipping away and forming cracks molding around the wearer's pulls and creases. As time passes, the jeans will mold to the user, uniquely aged by him/her, similar to how the process of raw denim fades are formed.
