Maison Martin Margiela – Hotel La Masion des Centraliens | Paris, France

No longer at the helm of his eponymous fashion label though much of the world still revers at the whisper of his name, Martin Margiela. Some of it is because of Margiela’s elusive and reclusive nature (last known photo of the designer was taken in 1997) But most of the reverence is born out of Margiela’s daring interpretations and his foresights in trends, often a decade ahead. It is in this identical context you will find Hotel La Masion des Centraliens. A former home to a Viennese princess, the converted townhouse is just brief stroll away from Champs Elysées and housed an elaboration of, well, “Margiela-ness”. Liken that of a carnival mirrored fun house but for adults, nothing is what it seems to be. A mix of Rococo styling with the bare minimalism he’s famous for plus high-tech applications such as laser-etch photo decors, oddities here are in fact the normalcy and vice versa. Yet, expect the thousands of Margiela fans to soon make pilgrimage here annually. via: FC // Martine Houghton
