Black Knit Column Dress with silver zipper detail from head to toe derives from Défilé (Runway, or, literally “show”) collection for women [Est. 2008, March]. “The original and primary collection of women’s ready-to-wear by Maison Martin Margiela debuted for SS 1989. This collection has traditionally been the subject of the Maison’s fashion shows and exhibitions.”

Given a plain white label free of any markings, the line was “created” by being separated from Line 1 when they had originally been two concepts under one Line. Essentially, Défilé was created to sell only runway, and Line 1 to sell more unusual or avant garde ready-to-wear retail pieces.

“The four white stitches only appear on unlined garments. They were devised so as to, realistically and ideally, offer the option to those confronting the garments for the first time to react to their form and energy, and not just the idea of “brand” as expressed via a label.”

The tag was originally only a plain white, unmarked cloth rectangle held at the nape of the neck by a single white basting stitch in each corner that were visible from the outside.
