Martin Margiela for Hermès – what was once radical is now timeless
Sometimes Pinterest does this annoying thing of suggesting ‘picks for you’ pins that have nothing to do with what you like. The exception is the treasure trove of Martin Margiela for Hermès era pins that have been popping up this week. It sent me down a PurseForum/The Fashion Spot rabbit hole looking for more examples from 1997-2003 (also the subject of an exhibition coming to Antwerp’s MoMu museum in March 2017).
These clothes were radical for Hermès at the time but look thoroughly contemporary now. And this was very much my look in the late 90s. I wore the slightly cheaper version from Joseph, Agnès b. and Helmut Lang, consisting of boy cut trousers with a long skinny knit tunic on top, a leather shirt dress and my beloved rubber riding boots. If they fit me now, they’d probably look great today…
