La Maison Martin Margiela in a Room


Maison Martin Margiela presents a special project at 10 Corso Como called “La Maison in a Room.” The installation represents a Parisian apartment, and runs from April 10th through May 30th. Similar to the label’s 11th arrondissement headquarters in Paris, the second floor of the Milanese concept store is covered in a trompe l’oeil wallpaper derived from a children’s paint by numbers book. The palette is only black and white, and the room is filled with furniture, objects and fabrics. With no clothing on display, the designer pushed his other achievements into the public eye: the Maison Martin Margeila book published by Rizzoli, his first fragrance for women called Untitled, and a handmade rug made in collaboration with Chevalier Éditions. Accessories were displayed in unexpected ways; safe deposit boxes playfully covered by paintings encased jewelry, while sunglasses covered the eyes of vintage dolls.
