Launching today Monday 30th November, in an unprecedented move Yoox.com will be selling Maison Martin Margiela`s super-luxe Artisinal collection including a dress made out of records, an elasticated jacket, a blazer crafted from sandals, and a disco-ball top. The Artisinal collection which includes both men's and women's garments will feature rare, one-off pieces that have been reworked by hand in Margiela's Parisian atelier (though not necessarily by the man himself sadly...)
Yoox.com will be devoting a special section of its website to the 100 garments for sale, also featuring a wedding gown created from three other vintage wedding dresses, a plastic tag fur gilet and a tinsel coat.
A portion of all proceeds will go to the Rosa Spier House in Holland, a non-profit organization offering housing to retired artists and academics.
