    it would survive well enough, i'd think. its bread and butter are pretty standard issue stuff that can be marketed ad naseum. yes, some of us will no longer buy it because without margiela it becomes quirky banana republic, but there are so many people that are looking for safe clothing under the label of the avant-garde, that this seems like a slam-dunk.

    Your own Marigela spa suite, at 650EUR a night. Looks kinda neat actually.

    In other Margiela WTF news - Michael Stripe for Margiela - a cassete necklace. Time for "The Margiela Watch" thread?

    AFTER months of whispers surrounding his future within his eponymous Maison, Renzo Rosso has confirmed that Martin Margiela is no longer directly involved in the designing of the label. Unsubstantiated whispers have suggested Haider Ackermann could be set to take the reigns, but Rosso insists the new direction lies in a new team.
    "Martin has not been there for a long time," Russo told WGSN. "He is here but not here. We have a new fresh design team on board. We are focusing on young, realistic energy for the future; this is really Margiela for the year 2015."
    Rosso, founder and owner of Diesel, bought a majority stake in Maison Martin Margiela in 2002 and remains involved in both companies today.
