Maison Martin Margiela embodies the “anti-brand” par excellence. The Belgian designer creates fashion with a revolutionary statement. The color white plays a central role for the designer. The color is reflected both in his studio and in the interior design of his stores, from white shopping bags and packaging materials to the white label of the brand. The designer focuses on his creations, doesn’t give any personal interviews, doesn’t let himself be photographed and does not appear on the catwalk after his shows. His fashion creations are always in the foreground and the designer sends his models onto the runway masked, thus censoring their faces.
The scents immediately conjure in the mind's eye images and impressions... Positive emotions that are associated not only with our own personal history but also with the collective unconscious. Composed by major perfumers such as Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud and Marie Salamagne, the Replica Creations capture fragrant moments that revive our hidden memories.
"This challenge was as stimulating as it was interesting for the brand. From the beginning, we thought of certain memories that would evoke these scents. But we had no idea what difficulties, and countless attempts, were waiting for us until we would finally achieve the results desired." - Maison Martin Margiela
"Each creation is based on the desire of adding unique and modern elements to commonly known fragrances in order to lend a new and innovative side to each one. Personally, I not particularly like the concept of nostalgia - I prefer rather the concept of rediscovering scents that actually already a part of us all." - Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud.
