A Maison Margiela collector will be selling off a part of their personal archive in an auction at Sotheby’s Paris, which will see rare one-of-five pieces and garments that date back to the house’s beginnings. The sale is comprised of 220 pieces made by the Belgian designer, which cover over 20 years worth of menswear and womenswear.

Star items from the lot include the one-of-five men’s playing card vest from the “40!” Artisanal collection, which is made from an assortment of shuffled, aged, frayed and ironed cards, as well as a one-of-two bow-tie dress. The 2006 playing card vest is valued between approximately $9,000 USD and $11,200 USD, making it one of the most expensive garments up for auction.

Leather pieces from Margiela’s Fall/Winter 1992 “Salvation Army” collection are estimated to go for around $2000 USD, while pieces from the photographic print collection of Spring/Summer 1996 are estimated to sell for approximately $1700 USD. Take a look at some of the standout pieces from the Maison Margiela auction in the gallery above, and find out more about how to purchase the pieces from September 19 to October 1 later this year on the Sotheby’s website.

Sotheby’s lève le voile sur une collection dédiée au créateur le plus discret de l’univers de la mode, Martin Margiela. Considéré comme l’un des couturiers les plus atypiques de sa génération, il fait partie des rares stylistes à avoir radicalement renouvelé la mode contemporaine. Près de 220 vêtements et accessoires, provenant d’une collection privée, retraceront en une vente événement les créations les plus emblématiques de sa carrière depuis ses débuts en 1989 jusqu’à 2006. Le temps d’une exposition et d’une vente publique qui se déroulera en ligne du 19 septembre au 1er octobre 2019, Sotheby’s rendra ainsi hommage au créateur sans visage, sans interview, à la griffe blanche vierge de tout logo, en proposant des pièces de prêt-à-porter ainsi qu’un ensemble significatif de pièces en édition limitée de la ligne Artisanal. #sothebysfashion #martinmargiela #pfw19
