Maison Martin & L'Oréal announce new vision for perfume
Mar '08
L'Oréal's Luxury Products Division announces the signing of a partnership agreement with Maison Martin Margiela for the creation of a first line of perfumes. This agreement expresses their shared wish to combine their expertise and reflect the unconventional and innovative world of Maison Martin Margiela through a perfume.

Maison Martin Margiela, avant-garde expertise:
Graduating from the Académie Royale d'Anvers in 1979, Martin Margiela joined Jean-Paul Gaultier's team before founding Maison Martin Margiela in 1988. At the same time, Hermès entrusted him with the artistic direction of its collections from 1999 to 2004.

In 2002, Renzo Rosso, President of the Only The Brave Group joined forces with him becoming a majority shareholder in the House. Today, Maison Martin Margiela is structured around 32 single brand sales outlets and more than 500 multi-brand stores across five continents. In 6 years, their turnover has increased fourfold.

Often characterised as iconoclastic and experimentalist, Maison Martin Margiela bases its creative expression on recycling, transformation and reinterpretation: an emotion, a unique and timeless proposition which challenges shapes and rules.

White, a symbol of simplicity and purity, unifies all the premises and items belonging to the House; it has become its most obvious visual identity, just as anonymity has become its signature.

“In our constant search for new forms of expression and creation,the desire to design a perfume appeared obvious. This perfume must be in our image, an elixir of all that we are and are fond of. The L'Oréal teams give us the human support and skills necessary to launch us on this adventure, while respecting our history, identity and values. This partnership is also a union between two worlds which mutually complement, support, nurture and inspire.” Maison Martin Margiela.
