In 1997, to the shock of many, the Hermès family handpicked the eccentric and brilliant Martin Margiela known for his avant-garde ideas and cultish following to assume the design reigns for the storied luxury house. That history is constructed here for the first time in ACC DISTRIBUTION's Margiela: The Hermès Years.


• During his four-year tenure, the iconoclastic designer, as fashion writer Suzy Menkes put it, produced for Hermès clothes that were elegant in an edgy way, making a clear statement about a masculine aesthetic but using tactile fabrics for a feminine allure.


• From renegade to regal, Margiela's ability to apply his unique design process at a fashion house with a vastly different sensibility marks him as a great designer one who understands traditional forms but always with an eye to the transformational.
