The high-profile “Margiela: The Hermès Years” exhibit is heading to Stockholm, Sweden.
Shining the spotlight on Martin Margiela‘s time as artistic director of Hermès’ women’s ready-to-wear division, the exhibition focuses on the brand’s 1997-2003 run. The showcase originally opened up to the public at a space inside MoMu Fashion Museum Antwerp in March of last year.
In a quote shared with WWD, MoMu Antwerp director Kaat Debo says that “Margiela: The Hermès Years” is proof that “Martin Margiela remains one of contemporary fashion’s most influential and enigmatic designers.” She also shared her excitement for “re-configuring the show in striking architecture of the Artipelag museum.”
The Artipelag aims to combine the worlds of “art and design” under the same forward-thinking roof, and Artipelag director Bo Nilsson believes the aforementioned Martin Margiela and Hermès exhibition is a perfect representation of those intentions.
You can preview “Margiela: The Hermès Years” above. To experience the exhibit for yourself, stop by Stockholm’s Artipelag contemporary culture center from Friday, October 26, 2018 to Sunday, March 10, 2019.
