Belgian fashion designer Martin Margiela is internationally renowned for his brand's avant-garde and expressive style. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1979, Margiela took the fashion world by storm. Creating thought-provoking and inspiring clothing Margiela aimed to turn the fashion world inside out. British designer John Galliano was revealed as the new Creative Director for the brand in 2014, and in 2015 the house rebranded to be known as simply Maison Margiela. Continuing the brand's creative and innovative style, the men's Maison Margiela backpacks are high fashion yet functional.
