munich: martin margiela

munich got a double margiela treat with the recent and simultaneous launch of the designer's 20 retrospective exhibition at the haus der kunst [on until jun 1] and opening of his first flagship store in germany. the opening bash was attended by the local arts scene, glitterati and fashion-forward industrials who were ferried in style on white rickshaws and white bikes from the store to the museum [see image below]. the 270 sqm. store is located on top-notch maximilianstrasse and features both menswear and womenswear collections. location: maximilanstrasse 34 [altstadt].
