Leaving a Footprint

A gift for the Sir or Madame who appreciates fashion.
dievca picked this up at the Met for her Master.
A small touch of Fashion insider knowledge –what is it?

A quirky leather bookmark inspired by Japanese footwear. Celebrating The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology at The Met, in which inventive creations by Maison Margiela were on view.

 

The cult fashion label expresses its creativity by recycling, transforming, and reinterpreting the quotidian in unexpected ways. The Tabi bookmark displays Maison Martin Margiela’s signature avant-garde sensibility. Handmade in France with the logo stamped in gold.

EDIT FROM OLIVIA KIM: “Always provocative and witty, Maison Martin Margiela accessories are fun and collectible. I love the Tabi bookmark, based on the insole from his iconic split-toe shoes. This is a perfect companion with the Manus x Machina exhibition catalog.”

And where does it come from?
