In this set, stitches of a sweater were printed on a nylon net pullover, and a wrinkled shirt was printed on a tricot cardigan. They are typical clothes made by Martin Margiela, who attempts to make us sense the disparity between the actual texture and the texture in our memories triggered by the prints.
Martin Margiela is from Belgium, and debuted in the Paris Collections in 1988. The clothes made by Margiela through reorganization of used clothes were his protest against a fashion system that ceaselessly produces new articles. One of the significant guidelines that influenced him in determining his approach of refusing to conform to ready-made ideas was the statement of Rei Kawakubo (1942–), who drew attention around the world in the 1980s.
