Les interviews
From: Modern menswear, Hywel Davies (2008) (Click to show)

1. describe your menswear design philosophy.
'Virility, individuality, masculinity without age'

2. What is the most enjoyable part of design?
'The conception, it's research, the inspiration.'

3. How would you describe your customer?
'Disparate, yet mainly from the creative fields.'

4. How would you describe your creative process and what fuels your design process?
'Continuous and drawn from day-to-day life with a reference to periods or our recent past where men were more resplendent than recently.

5. Does your design process always follow the same track?
'Not always yet usually, like most things instinctive.'

6. How would you define successful menswear?
'Invisible, melded with the person so much so that they both become one.'

7. How improtant is masculinity in menswear?
'Vital.'

8. How would you describe contemporary menswear?
'For the moment it seems to be eccentrically varied yet with a leaning towards 1980s music references.'

9. How do you know when a garment is complete?
'You just do!'

10. What is the most challenging aspect of design?
'Pushing forward yet remaining true to the authenticity of the garment.'

11. How many of your menswear ideas are based on tradition?
'Practically all, yet one man's tradition can be another's poison.'

12. How are you personally innovative/modern with menswear?
'That's for others to decide we just ''do'', continue and hopefully grow.'

13. How would you define your aesthetic?
'A sensibility, sensuality, a ''self''.'

I'm a little more comfortable in Ann just because it kinda works with jeans (in my mind anyway?) as opposed to Dries whose looks really go with pressed wool pants, which I don't really wear or want to wear for the most part.  But I haven't handled any Dries and sometimes I'm way off on these assumptions...

ps: Margiela often wears a beret, true story.

The MMM book is really good with tons of pictures, articles, and interviews (all of the French is translated to English too) etc for his entire time of running the label. I'd recommended picking it up for anyone interested.

I hope in the future I'll be able to buy something of his from ebay or something. I'm nowhere near being able to afford anything right now. musicboohoo[1].gif

 

Beware of image-heavy posts under the cuts.
