THE FIRM “In our view, it is not just the independence of creativity that needs to be maintained,” pronounces the Maison Martin Margiela, pictured at its Parisian atelier wearing the house’s signature uniform, “but also the personalities of those involved.” The empty seat is that of the reclusive, camera-phobic designer. Details, stores, see In This Issue. For names, see page 717.

Jurgi Persoons autumn—winter 1998—99.
"You don’t want to see any more shows in Paris, do you?" says Jurgi Persoons with a subtle voice. "How many shows do you see in one day? Six or seven? Maybe eight shows. You’ve got to line up in a queue and grab a seat. It’s crazy and hysterical. I wanted to show a new method of presenting clothes, in a more relaxed atmosphere." This is his sixth season and first presentation in Paris. It wasn’t a show, but a fifteen minutes film in an old theatre in Paris. There wasn’t any hustle of grabbing a seat in the theatre. You could relax in an atmosphere where ice cream and popcorn was being served. The film started from 10pm. The images were delicate, beautiful and abstract, accompanied by the live poetic sounds of electric guitar and brass.
A woman hanged from the ceiling - red knit body suits, which clings around her body like cobwebs.
A woman walking quickly through a tunnel - movement of fringe flickers in the darkness with flashlight.
A profile of a woman buried in sand - details of torn off lace, colour of white.
Persoons didn’t put any story in the film, as he wanted to emphasise the beauty of the picture itself. “When you’re confronted with a film that you don’t know what you’re watching, you’re put into a situation where you have to think what it is. That’s the challenge. It must be more difficult and interesting to watch this kind of film than just watching a show, because you have to decipher it by yourself. I wanted those people who are interested in this film to come to my showroom and see my clothes.”

WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE BRANDS IN THE STORE?
Darren Rudland (store manager at Hostem): MA+, because of its expertise in working leather; whether it’s a jacket or a pair of boots, the finish and styling are always distinctive. And Geoffrey B. Small, because of his attention to detail and his overriding passion for what he believes in. With each piece being totally handmade, I feel that he always gives something totally unique.

my favourite brands too! really need to go to shoreditch again!

"One who owns his/her name and collection, owns the distribution, production and financing of their art and work. No sponsors. No licenses. No parent companies. No agents. Total artistic and financial control of their intellectual property. And good customers to keep it all going. A true master of the game."
