SUNDAY – Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Collection at Galleria Carla Sozzani. The use of white, with all its different shades, tones and textures, as universal color and the decorative signature have always characterized the Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Collection. Infact, the exhibition, very cleverly, with its silhouetted shadows panels, on one side, greats you at the Galleria Carla Sozzini, upstairs in Corso Como 10. It is the first time ever that Carla has hosted an exhibition that isn’t art or photography. The selection of pieces from the Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal Collection includes the most emotional and creative pieces over the past twenty years. These pieces are born from the poetic conception of imperfections: “Our most important source of inspiration has always been the extremes and the changes of everyday life.

The research of used and new materials and the belief that these garments and objects can be given a second life, while respecting and maintaining the traces of the passage of time and use, remains one of the keystones of the Maison’s creative expression.
Did you know? In 1994 the Maison launched its first “Aids T-shirt”. Since then, the T-shirt is proposed each season in a different color. Parts of the profits are donated to a research foundation against the Aids virus.
