Dream: the Sweetheart and Mother Apron Dress
Pieces from the Artisanal Collection by Maison Martin Margiela use both new and recycled vintage materials. This apron-dress lined in satin is made from cushion covers dating from the first world war. The pantsuit in the background is embroidered with mother of pearl buttons sourced from an old button factory in Portsmouth, England. The ‘Party Tabi’ ankle boots are made from leather and covered with the foil used to dress the necks of champagne bottles.
