After checking out Maison Martin Margiela ($63), by Martin Margiela, I found myself even more intrigued by the mysterious, elusive Belgian designer. I admit, I was disappointed with the blank cover baring only the brand's tag and not Margiela's face, but the decadent fabric, inks, ribbons, and minibooklets inside make up for it. Not only is this book beautiful, it also offers insight into Margiela's secretive creative process along with exclusive essays about Margiela from fashion greats such as Vanessa Beecroft, Andreé Putman, and Jean Paul Gaultier. Scintillating, to say the least.
