GENTLE MONSTER AND MAISON MARGIELA LAUNCHING COLLABORATION
Maison Margiela x Gentle Monster presents Gentle Monster’s original eyewear designs incorporating real threaded details of Maison Margiela’s stitch logo, embodying the brands’ value of uncompromised creativity and self-expression. Structured in acetate, the designs are interpreted in glossy colours and effects spanning black, white, grey, cream, transparent, and tortoiseshell. Featuring hand-stitched matelassé quilt details, the collaboration package reconceives Maison Margiela’s Glam Slam clutch through Gentle Monster’s aesthetic.
Conceived by Creative Director John Galliano and Gentle Monster, the genderless line – which includes sunglasses and spectacles – is founded in concepts developed in the Artisanal atelier and encompasses eleven designs across numerous colourways. The French haute couture house and the global fashion eyewear brand detect in their practices a shared belief in experimental craftsmanship. The union of the two brands constructs a new ‘Créature’ manifested through a unique campaign with Katerina Jebb’s high-resolution scanning technique
