Peace God… Uh! Uh! And ain’t nobody fresher, I’m in Maison Uh! Martin Margiela
Pop it to See What He’s Talking About
Maison Martin Margiela is a clothing line. Actually, it’s one of Jay-Z’s favorite lines. The owner Martin Margiela has been in the fashion business since 1980, designing for lines such as Jean Paul Gaultier, his own and Hermès women’s line. He has helped turn the world of fashion upside-down with eccentric designs.
Martin Margiela and the Antwerp Six would carry on the work, revolting against the luxurious fashion world with garments of oversized proportions such as long arms, and with linings, seams and hems on the outside. The concept of deconstruction is important for the understanding of Martin Margiela’s fashion statement. Margiela famously redesigns by hand objects such as old wigs, canvases and silk scarves into couture garments.
He has never been a photographer and always keeps a low profile; they say he always remains backstage during all of his fashion events.
Maison Martin Margiela’s ultra-discreet trademark consists of a piece of cloth with the numbers 0-23. The badge is attached to the inside with its four little white pick stitches, exposed to the outside on unlined garments.
So, now maybe a lot of the rumors can be put to rest about Jay-Z being a “MASON.”
