Could it be?!

Martin Margiela, 1997 by Marcio Madeira

It is without extraneous fanfare that we introduce you to the man himself, Mr. Martin Margiela. Born in 1957 in Genk, Belgium, Martin is currently 52 years old. This photograph was taken by Marcio Madeira in 1997, and although unconfirmed by the house, is thought to be the most recent image of Martin in public circulation. Such a candid image is a rarity - the picture of a man who has built a veritable empire on the ideals of collective thought and anonymity, unmasked here in a candid close-up. Etched in our minds, it is instantly iconic.

Martin, revealed.
