Born in the Atelier

Conceived by Maison Margiela's Creative Director John Galliano and the global fashion eyewear brand Gentle Monster, the genderless line is founded on concepts developed in the artisanal atelier. The collection maintains a shared belief in experimental craftsmanship. The union constructs a new ‘Créature’ through a unique campaign with Katerina Jebb’s high-resolution scanning technique.
