DESCRIPTION

A candid portrait of the cult Belgian designer and the brand that changed the fashion industry forever.

Shot with the direct participation of Jenny Meirens (the muse and the right hand of the Belgian designer) not long before her death, We Margiela is a personal and unpretentious film that avoids the pathos that often accompanies documentaries about the greatest minds of this world. For the first time in the history of the brand the story behind it is told by its past and present employees—the very “people in white smocks” who have stayed true to the House and have protected the legend of hermit Margiela from outsiders’ assaults for all these years. The film provides details on how Martin and Jenny’s avant-garde ideas were conceived and how today they have become part of the mainstream fashion industry—be it fashion shows in unusual urban locations or casting of “non-standard” street models. Using personal stories, the film shows what it was like to work under the command of one of the most radical and mysterious contemporary designers.
