Martin Margiela’s Philosophy of Art, Creative Process, Life

In our travels through the web, we stumbled upon this very interesting interview, purportedly with famously reclusive designer Martin Margiela, whose clothes we admire, and early all-white studio we featured for its unique logic. Embedded in this typed page are some seriously insightful and philosophical views of art, the creative process, and what’s REALLY important. Together they make a rather wonderful poem.

WHAT IS FUNCTION?
A reply to a need.

WHAT IS ART?
A need to reply.

HOW DOES A CONCEPT DEVELOP AT MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA?
Time, a question, a reply.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DEVELOP? BESIDES CLOTHING?
An understanding.

WHAT WORDS DO YOU LIVE BY?
We.
