Martin Margiela: In His Own Words

 

One of the most revolutionary and influential fashion designers of his time, Martin Margiela has remained an elusive figure the entirety of his decades-long career. From Jean Paul Gaultier’s assistant to creative director at Hermès to leading his own House, Margiela never showed his face publicly and avoided interviews, but reinvented fashion with his radical style through forty-one provocative collections. Now, for the first time, the “Banksy of fashion” reveals his drawings, notes, and personal items in this exclusive, intimate profile of his vision.

The film features interviews with, among others, Margiela himself, Jean Paul Gaultier, Carine Roitfeld, trend forecaster Lidewij Edelkoort, fashion critic Cathy Horyn, and fashion historian Olivier Saillard. The score has been composed by the Belgian rock band dEUS.

2019. Documentary. 90 min. NR.

This is much more than a simple success story. To me, it first of all is the story of a man who followed his own way and who, by this attitude, became “immortal.” A man who had the courage to quit at the top of his career and turn his back on the draining fashion world in order to be happy.”

director Reiner Holzemer
