Antwerp Six makes good with Martin Margiela

A very special piece!
The designer has attached, as the label, a "map" that indicates the level of importance the piece holds (to the label).
This is numbered 0 which means there are very few pieces, and would have been quite expensive, and of course, very collectable.

An interesting piece from "Maison Martin Margiela" originally of the "Antwerp 6", an experimental design collaborative started in the 1980's that included Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten. Margiela began his own label in 1986.

This shirt, for men or women, has great potential in terms of longevity and style. Layered and in two pieces with a white cotton under layer and black gauze chiffon over layer. There is a hook closure at the heart and one more at the belly button.
It can be really cute as a jacket too!
Using only the top heart closure it can be beautiful beach wear or an evening jacket.
