Martin Margiela produced some of the most thought-provoking fashions of our era. His work often featured deconstruction and cast-off objects repurposed to make something entirely new. This tunic clearly mimics the look of a typical couture dress-form, and interrogates concepts of the ideal body and the standardization of fashion.
