Martin Margiela at Galeries Lafayette Anticipation
What: the first ever art exhibition by Martin Margiela
Why it is important: this major event will reinforce Galeries Lafayette’s pre-eminence in fashion and art, by putting its Art foundation under the spotlights
Martin Margiela, founder of the eponymous brand and who retired in 2009, will show for the first time ever its artistic works. It makes all the more sense than Margiela has always been considered at the crossroads of art and fashion. By showing such an exhibition in their Art foundation, Galeries Lafayette are expecting to create buzz which will for sure reverberate on nearby Eataly and BHV and, of course, Haussman and Champs Elysées stores.
