Margiela <3 Malevich

Juxtaposing the Russian constructivist's pioneering drawing with Margiela's recent designs

With a blockbuster show at London's biggest modern art gallery, the world's eyes are turning on Russian revolutionary artist Kazimir Malevich as never before. Begüm Sekendiz Boré , who has shown how Yves Klein, Keith Haring and Louise Bourgeois and many other art giants have impacted and influenced recent runway shows, took some of the Constructivist masters best drawings, and saw how they appear to predate collections from one of fashion's most fascinating houses. As Begüm says, this is the story of how "Maison Martin Margiela fled over to London to coexist with Malevich at his current exhibition at Tate Modern."
