Signature White is the new ephemeral curation by Maison Margiela exclusively for its UAE and Kuwait clientele. This one-off capsule collection explores the properties of the colour white, key to the genetics of the house. The genderless wardrobe is collaged from current as well as pieces from Co-Ed and Icons Collections.
White has appeared in a multitude of nuances and representations since the inception of Maison Margiela in 1988, and these days headed by British couturier John Galliano. An expression of purity, clarity, and authenticity, white reduces an object to its honest form.
The desaturated quality of white strips objects of the visual enhancements immediately detectable to the eye and creates a blank essence. White is likewise the colour of the blouse blanche cotton coats worn by those who work within Maison Margiela in homage to the uniform of its Artisanal haute couture ateliers.
The curation proposes a complete gender-neutral wardrobe composed of ready-to-wear, signature shoes of the Maison including the Tabi, the 4-Stitches Decortiqué and 50/50 sneakers, and leather goods with the iconic Glam Slam and 5AC.
The “Signature White” selection, including styles from the Avant Premiere & Icons Collections, is available in Maison Margiela boutiques at The Dubai Mall, UAE and The Avenues, Kuwait.
