Margiela, les annees Hermes at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs March 22nd – September 2

Dear Shaded Viewers,

It is truly the year of master Martin Margiela with two beautiful exhibitions in Paris at the same time. He merits it of course. Can you believe, I’ve never met him but am close to those that have. I guess he will remain a secret to me for life but his work is there for all of us to appreciate. The show was originally devised by the ModeMuseum (MoMu) in collaboration with Martin Margiela and presented in antwerp in 2017. The exhibition highlights the work of Margiela for Hermes from 1997-2003. The mise en scene by Bob Verhelst, another talented Belgian and it is set with Maison Margiela on white and Margiela for Hermes on Orange.
