The Archive Series, which goes live on April 17, will offer up to 200 one-off pieces from as far back as the ‘70s and it includes rare and unique pieces from Maison Martin Margiela, Jean Paul Gaultier, Comme Des Garcon and much more.
Key pieces include the iconic Vintage Maison Martin Margiela Semi-Couture dressmakers bodice apron, a Comme Des Garcons show robe from 1986 that became a cult piece in the ‘80s when Rei Kawakubo took the idea from an atelier lab coat and made it hers, and a Johnny Rotten Mohair jumper from 1976 that has been authenticated by the Westwood company.
This edit by Byronesque pays homage to some of the most iconic moments in fashion history, from punk to the mid-2000’s, with each and every piece telling a story beyond the boundaries of fashion.
