tokyo: the maison in a room

opening today at the martin margiela store in daikanyama is the maison in a room, the brand's well-known installation that showcases all of its non-fashion product lines. this 'room' is inspired by the iconographic use of black + white for the interior of its paris headquarters. this colour scheme has been captured in trompe-l’œil walls depicting a lavish 18th century parisian apartment. actual paintings adorn the walls yet hide lockers with jewellery and a collection of sunglasses are displayed on surrealistic cabinets [on until nov 21]. location: kyoden building, 2-8-13 ebisu-minami [daikanyama]. © maison martin margiela
