Name Branded: The Best Signature Design Details in Fashion

Maison Martin Margiela Four Stitches

Brand: Maison Martin Margiela
Design Signature: Four-stitch detail

Designer Martin Margiela is known for his subtly avant-garde designs. A contemporary of the highly influential "Antwerp Six" group of designers, he is infamous for keeping a notoriously low profile. This notion is reflected in how he brands his designs. Opting to sew the tag inside the clothes, he leaves four stitches visible on the backs of the garments, while a numbered tag or stamp is actually a code for what line within the brand a particular piece falls into. The stitch detail is even worked into his shoes and accessories, albeit to a lesser extent.
