A Martin Margiela artisanal sock jumper, Fall-Winter 1990. Men’s socks are split, flattened and stitched together to assemble a jumper. The shape of the socks are preserved yet modelled to create the form of the garment with the heels evolving to establish elbows and the bust line. Only a limited amount were ever produced by the atelier, making it an extremely rare and iconic example of the Maison’s ingenious deconstructed design.

Provenance: This item was specially hand produced for a former employee by the Artisanal Atelier upon her departure. A version of this piece with identical socks was featured in the 2017 exhibition “Margiela: The Hermès Years” on loan from the Maison.
