For the 20th anniversary of the house of Martin Margiela, Rizzoli is publishing a hardcover book with over 400 color photos of the work of the fashion icon. Carine Roitfeld, Jeasn Paul Gaultier and Andree Putman, amongst other fashion luminaries, contribute essays. Titled Maison Martin Margiela, to be sold this October (during Paris fashion week of course!), it aims to offers give insight into the creative process of the famously secretive designer. The cover—white cotton, embroidered— is a tribute to Margiela's labels: The telltale tag anonymously distinguishing all his merchandise. Printed on luxe paper, with silver ink, and 12 (!) ribbon bookmarks, this is definitely one for the bookshelf.
