Maison Margiela is a French fashion house, founded in Paris in 1988 by Belgian designer Martin Margiela. Both masculine and feminine, oftentimes fusing the two genders, the House takes a cerebral approach to deconstructing, reinventing and redefining men’s and womenswear silhouettes. In 1996, Maison Margiela launched Line 6, later dubbed MM6 as the houses more accessible, less intellectual sports component. MM6 takes an unconventional approach to feminine, casual codes through contemporary cuts and prints. A single horizontal stitch, visible from the garment's exterior, fastens the MM6 label to each garment.
