Martin Margiela studied fashion at the Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp before landing a job as a design assistant to legendary couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier. After the launch of his first independent collection back in 1989, he quickly became known for his standout grunge-inspired designs. Current creative director John Galliano brings his extravagant aesthetic to the brand's avant-garde collection. Men's Maison Margiela lace-ups will give any outfit a cool, sophisticated edge. This collection features sleek leather Derby shoes, grey brushed Oxford lace-ups and neoprene insert leather brogues.
