That evening, I go through a list of Margielas in the Belgian phone directory hoping that someone can bring a reality to the designer. There are about a dozen of them and I pick a number at random. Someone answers almost immediately. “Yes hello I’m writing a piece on Martin Margiela…” I say. “He’s my brother,” interrupts a gentle, male voice on the other end. “But I don’t speak about him.” It is an abrupt call, but it confirms that Martin Margiela is real. He’s not a ghost or a woman.

Anonymous: hello :) do you by chance have any info on Mr. Martin Margiela's pre-Gaultier shoe line? thanks :)

I posted a few of his graduate collection photos under the Martin Margiela tag. I don’t have anything on the shoe line so I can’t help you there.
