Martin Margiela – Hors Normes II

I n October 2019, Sotheby’s opened the doors to a private collection dedicated to the most discreet designer in the fashion world, Martin Margiela. Following this success, Sotheby’s is now unveiling the much-anticipated second part of the collection in an online sale from 3 – 9 March. One of the most atypical designers of a generation, Margiela radically reinvented contemporary fashion. The auction offers a new insight into the most memorable moments of this Maison, covering 20 years of design from 1989 to 2009 across almost 200 lots. These include ready-to-wear pieces, "Artisanal" items produced exclusively in very limited editions, accessories and many head-to-toe “total looks”.
