Giving Thanks to Martin Margiela

Thanksgiving was yesterday and RARE vintage was thankful for a great year of wonderful vintage finds.

We thought that it would be nice to share a 1996 dressmaker form vest from Martin Margiela. It is the complete opposite of the sequin YSL tank in our last post but Margiela is no less influential then Yves Saint Laurent. Mr. Margiela may not make clothes that are seen in the mainstream but his influence on designers who are inspired by his work and whose designs do make it to the street is tremendous.

This piece in thick linen, is printed with "semi-couture" on the lower front. It is fashion at its most simple and its most beautiful. It is seeing the ordinary and turning it into the extraordinary.
