Next month, luxury auction house Sotheby’s will be offering a 200-piece collection of vintage Maison Margiela clothing. The collection, up for sale by a private collector, ranges from accessories to full ensembles—ready-to-wear and haute couture. The garments, together titled “Martin Margiela—Hors Normes II,” date back to 1989 until 2006.
Major moments from the collection include a look from Martin Margiela’s trompe l’oeil show for Spring/Summer 1996. There’s also a fully intact plastic bag dress from the Maison’s Fall/Winter 1998 collection, as well as one of Margiela’s famous duvet coats from the Fall/Winter 1999 season. The piece was later reimagined for the brand’s collaboration with H&M in 2012.
The “Martin Margiela—Hors Normes II” online auction at Sotheby’s begins March 3 at 8 a.m. EST. It will run until March 9.
