Renzo Rosso Confirms Martin Margiela Is No Longer Designing at Maison Martin Margiela

Martin Margiela Retires, House Searches For New Creative Director

After 20 years of designing for his namesake brand, Martin Margiela is officially throwing in his creative hat at Maison Martin Margiela. "Martin has not been there for a long time," said the brand's majority stake holder, Renzo Rosso. "He is here but not here. We have a new fresh design team on board. We are focusing on young, realistic energy for the future; this is really Margiela for the year 2015." With that said, the brand is looking for a new creative director to take the reins and run with it. Offers have been put out to Raf Simons and Haider Ackermann, but both have rejected. Raf decided to renew his contract with Jil Sander, and supposedly, Haider Ackermann turned down the offer because of the brand's refusal to promote the new head designer.
