So, we haven’t been posting for some days now because we’ve been working like busy bees from one appointment to the next, going to
the fairs in between and also the shows but, we are keeping track of everything and promise that we’ll show it all in the next few days.
Going back to last friday, we were at Maison Martin Margiela. It’s 9:30 am, our first day of shopping in Paris and here we are at this old school in 163, rue Saint Maur. The beautiful building hosts the MMM headquarters. More than just a showroom, this is the place where everything happens on a daily basis. It feels special to be in this creative working space, among the lab coat people that make the brand.
The building from the outside and the main entrance. The room where the men’s collection is displayed and we make our own selection.
Below, the accessories room where both men’s and women’s collections are displayed and one of the stair halls in between the rooms.
The trompe l’oeil effect can be seen everywhere in all the doors along with the white painted objects and the unfinished walls.
An inner patio next to the cafeteria to where the most resilient come to have a coffee or to satisfy their nicotine cravings. The meal room with a canteen kind of vibe. The food is always great and there’s always chocolate cake at the end. Double Yummy!
