“The Maison in a room” – Maison Martin Margiela
Maison Martin Margiela has created a one of a kind installation at 10 Corso Como:
a single room re-designed and decorated by Maison Martin Margiela where
all non-fashion lines of the Maison are displayed:
home objects (line 13), fragrances (line 3), sunglasses (line 8)
and jewellery pieces (line 12).
The atmosphere of the room draws on the prolific and iconographic use of black and white
in furniture, objects, fabrics and textures – old and new.
Trompe l’oeil walls of a Parisian apartment show a fireplace,
where safes are half hidden behind classical paintings
to display jewellery while sunglasses are presented on surrealistic dolls’ eyes cabinets.
