For the first time since its launch in 1997, MM6 Maison Martin Margiela introduces a capsule in collaboration with New York retail pioneer, Opening Ceremony.
A key foundation stone of the Maison’s creative expression is the idea of recuperation, transformation and reinterpretation. Based upon a 3-in-1 concept, select styles throughout the collection will transform into separately wearable garments. Inspired by the construction of a jacket with detachable lining, this core characteristic will broaden the collection from over 20 original styles into an assortment of additional silhouettes.
The MM6 Maison Martin Margiela and Opening Ceremony collaboration will include both women’s apparel and accessories that represent the trend-setting and collaborative personality of Opening Ceremony together with the daily and younger contemporary approach to fashion design of MM6 Maison Martin Margiela.
